In collaboration with
Polytechnic University of Bari


Supported by
Apulia Region

The European Space Generation Workshop (E-SGW) is an international event that aims to bring together students and young professionals to think and collectively create Europe’s future in space.


Countdown to
E-SGW 2023


The 7th edition of the European Space Generation Workshop (E-SGW) will be held in person on the 28th and 29th April 2023 at the Polytechnic University of Bari, in the Apulia Region.

The overarching event theme chosen for the 7th E-SGW is “Making sustainability the cornerstone for European space innovation and policy coordination”. As space innovation evolves exponentially, support towards sustainability claims is certainly justified. That is not only for the purpose of ensuring that safe and viable methods of space exploration and exploitation are developed in order to protect both earthly and space environments (“sustainability in space”), but also to ensure that space exploration supports society on Earth and enhances its development (“sustainability from space”).

During the two-day workshop, 100 students and young professionals (18-35 years of age) from all over Europe will be divided into 5 Working Groups discussing a wide range of topics, from space tourism and private investments, to the use of the latest downstream applications and human adaptation to space. The results of these working groups will have the opportunity to be presented at the annual meeting of UN COPUOS, or as articles or business innovations.

Attending this E-SGW will give delegates the opportunity to exchange ideas with other young, brilliant minds, to aspire and be inspired as well as to network and engage in resourceful discussions with international and prominent speakers representing industry, international organizations and academia.
