February 25 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM CET
The SGAC Croatia Webinar Series aims to inspire and motivate university students and young professionals in Croatia and abroad to grow a career in the space industry.
Inspired by the motivational stories from talented SGAC members from all around the world, the SGAC team in Croatia aims to bring the same excitement about space and self-development in Croatia and the region.
A series of 8 webinars will host local experts in various fields such as space science and engineering, space policy, space business and others, and give them a floor to share their projects, ideas, and experiences with the community.
Everyone is welcome to attend and will be able to interact with lecturers at the end of each webinar session.
The first webinar with a title “SGAC, the Space Industry for Young Professionals”, was held on 11 February 2021. The recording will be made available on SGAC’s YouTube channel shortly.
The second episode will cover the topic of space policy and law including the UN bodies, space treaties, and international collaboration.
The Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS) was established in 1959 by the UN General Assembly to govern the exploration and use of space for the benefit of all humanity: for peace, security, and development. The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) works to promote international cooperation in the peaceful use and exploration of space, and in the utilisation of space science and technology for sustainable economic and social development. Find out more about UN space bodies, their members, and programs during this webinar.
