Building on the success of the previous (2017) SGAC event in Athens, SG[Greece] 2018 aspires to follow up with an inspiring evening session on Friday, 23 November.
Experts of the space sector as well as younger speakers will present their experience, focusing on potential opportunities for the new space generation, both within Greece and abroad.
SG[Greece] 2018 is organised under the umbrella of the ESA- and SGAC-supported European Space Talks initiative. Attendance is free and the hosting venue will be the Ceremony Hall of the National Technical University of Athens (link to location map on the right side of this page).
The event’s main thematic will be: dissemination of information regarding opportunities to get involved in the Greek space sector, applying for an internship at the European Space Agency (ESA), sharing of relevant experience in the field, offering advice, and raising awareness about the diversity and importance of the space domain. There will also be time for Q&As and networking.
Space is an interdisciplinary arena and consequently attendants from all backgrounds are welcome at SG[Greece] 2018. Greek will be the official language of the talks, but English-speaking enthusiasts are also welcome to attend.
