Following ESA’s Intermediate Ministerial Meeting, held in October 2018 at ESA’s European Space Astronomy Centre near Madrid, Spain is preparing to host the next ESA Council meetings at both, ministerial and ordinary levels, called “Space19+” on 26-27-28 November 2019 in Seville. “Space19+” will bring together all ESA Member States and will be a milestone for the European space agenda as it will allow ESA’s Director General to submit the future ESA space programmes roadmap and to agree on EU financial contribution.
The presidency of the Community of Ariane Cities (CVA) will be held by the Seville City Council in 2019, with the collaboration of the Space Forum of the City of Seville. Additionally, if the forecasts are met, 2019 will be the year in which Spain will host the first commercial launch of The European Suborbital Rocket, the Microlauncher designed and manufactured in Spain.
In this very special year for the space sector in Spain, the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) is organizing its first SG[Spain] local event.
This inaugural one-day event will be held in Madrid on July 5th. The event is intended for university students and young professionals (aged 18-35 years) and guest speakers from the space industry, space agencies, space non-governmental organizations and research laboratories. The purpose of the event is to gather together people who are passionate about space coming from different backgrounds to enhance interdisciplinary professional network and exchange of ideas regarding the future of the space field.
The event will be held in Spanish
Selected participants will contribute to boosting the impact of space in our society and to incentivising the Spanish footprint in space-related activities. Major focus will be placed on understanding International Space Policies, ESA’s Space19+ and the new era of global space exploration with new challenges as the Moon-Gateway and in-orbit services development.
