    Call For Papers

    Aim Of The Competition  | Submission Guidelines

    On the occasion of the UNISPACE+50 Conference, the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) invite students and young professionals worldwide to submit a paper on the “Post - 2030 Agenda and the role of space”.

    Deadline:23 January 2018 , 23:30 CET


     

    Aim of this competition


    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), officially “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” is a set of 17 "Global Goals" with 169 associated targets which the state community adopted on 25th September 2015. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years. These 17 Sustainable Development Goals seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. The commitment was taken to achieve this Agenda and utilize it to the full to transform our world for the better by 2030. But what comes after 2030? What may be the goals to archive beyond 2030 by governments, the private sector, civil society and individuals for a sustainable future? And how space can contribute to it? Which role could space play in this context? 

    The papers should address potential new goals or targets which take into account the needs and interests of the whole international community and how they might be achieved by the support of space applications. The paper can also analyze how the existing themes may evolve further with regards to space activity. It is strongly encouraged that the paper only focus on one issue, rather than try to discuss a number of issues. This will allow the paper to adhere to the word limit while still offering an in-depth study. Beyond this limitation, participants are free to choose their subject, although it is encouraged to choose a unique and novel subject. 

    The most innovative, inspiring or well-written papers will be accumulated and published. Moreover, the selected papers will be used as working material to support the discussion of The Space Generation Congress (SGC), the annual meeting of the Space Generation Advisory Council, which will be held in Bremen, Germany on 26 - 29 September, 2018 prior to the 69th International Astronautical Congress (IAC). By submitting a paper participants consent to publication of their paper or part of it.

    Please send your contribution in both a word and pdf format simultaneously to the following two e-mail addresses to ensure, from a technical point of view, that your contribution is well received: Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam.

    Call For Papers

    Aim Of The Competition  | Submission Guidelines

    On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) invite students and young professionals globally to submit a paper which offers a fresh view on the Outer Space Treaty.

    Deadline:30 July 2017 , 23:30 CET


     

     

    Aim of this competition


    The aim of this competition is to write a paper which has a fresh legal view on the Outer Space Treaty. As such, the paper should not discuss the history of the Outer Space Treaty nor just discuss the current legal obligations, or even ambiguous legal obligations, under the Outer Space Treaty. Rather, the paper should consider an actual fresh legal view on the Outer Space Treaty, presenting new legal obligations that should be included, solutions to overcome diverging interpretations of current legal obligations or solutions that fill a void in the existing legal obligations in the Outer Space Treaty. This fresh legal view, however, should not just be an interpretation or perspective in the interest of one or a minority of States. The new legal obligation or solution should take into account the needs and interests of the whole international community and thus should be able to gain the acceptance of said whole international community. It is strongly encouraged that the paper only focus on one issue, rather than try to discuss a number of issues. This will allow the paper to adhere to the word limit while still offering an in-depth study. Beyond this limitation, participants are free to choose their subject, although it is encouraged to choose a unique and novel subject.

    The most innovative, interesting or well-written papers will be accumulated and published. Moreover, the selected papers will be used as working material to support the discussion of the 16th Space Generation Congress Working Group titled, "Outer Space Treaty: The Next Fifty Years". (The Space Generation Congress (SGC) is the annual meeting of the Space Generation Advisory Council, and will be held in Adelaide, Australia on 21 - 23 September, 2017 prior to the 68th International Astronautical Congress (IAC).)

    By submitting a paper participants consent to publication of their paper or part of it.

    OHB SE Competition

    Description | Award | Guidelines | Schedule | Contact | Sponsor | Past Winners

    OHB SE, one of Europe’s prominent satellite developers, and SGAC are collaborating to support two SGAC members to attend the 16th Space Generation Congress (SGC) and the 68th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Adelaide, Australia.

     APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO: 15 JULY, 2017

     

    Description


    While Space Mining might seem like something from a science fiction novel written in the 1960s, it is most certainly becoming a very valid reality now in 2017. With some companies becoming pioneers in asteroid mining technologies, it is likely that over the next 50 years, there will be missions to and from asteroids to mine their unique materials to bring back to Earth, or to Mars.

    This competition calls for ideas in how these, and other companies that are likely to spring up over the next few decades, will be able to design, develop, build, and launch spacecraft to reach asteroids for work. What do you envision the space economy to be like, and how do you think space mining and space resources will play a role in this? Ideas include technological advancements, life support advancements, what sort of materials would be in high/low demand, would there be a new currency developed for this space economy, and so forth.

    The winners of the competition will present their idea at this year’s SGC and will have their paper published on both the SGAC and OHB website.

     

    Award


    The main authors of two winning papers will receive an award of up to 2000 EUR in order to attend and give a presentation at the following events:

    The award will include provisions for travel, accommodation, and registration for SGC and IAC.
