Countdown to


The fifth edition of the European Space Generation Workshop will be held in the online format on 28th May, 29th May, and 5th June 2021. Delegates will get the opportunity to share ideas on sustainable space applications – a topic in which the interest has substantially increased over the past few years.

During the three days (two weekends) students and young professionals (18-35 years of age) will discuss and shape the future of space in Europe together. There will be talks and panels by experts and professionals from the leading European companies and agencies, and working groups where the delegates will discuss diverse space topics moderated by industry experts. It is a great opportunity for young space enthusiasts to learn about the latest space developments and to engage and discover the opportunities in the space field. Space companies and agencies will be interested to recognise talent and obtain insight on innovative ideas and the opinion of the next generation of space professionals.

Space for Earth and Humanity

The Organizing Team of the 5th European Space Generation Workshop has selected “Space for Earth and Humanity” as the overarching focus of the different working groups. Concerns for our climate and environment have never been as pressing and current as now. We aspire to highlight and discuss sustainable solutions in this year’s edition of the E-SGW: how space applications can be used and/or developed not only to continue supporting our modern, digital and connected societies but also to help shape a modern clean, and sustainable world.  

The vast majority of today’s space applications are not developed for deep space exploration but for life here on Earth. It is 2021, a new decade is ahead of us, let’s take this to the next level and use space applications to ensure we can all have a bright future on this planet!

COVID-19 message from our Event Managers

Dear colleagues,

Your safety is our top priority. We hoped we could welcome you in beautiful Madrid, Spain but the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) did not permit it. We have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully. Based on the most up-to-date policies involving travel and event attendance, and in consideration of general public health and safety, the team has decided to deliver the conference program in the online format.

We want to ensure a great quality event. The organizing team is working hard to make the 5th E-SGW an event to remember for all delegates, speakers, and sponsors!

We can’t wait to meet you!
