SGAC is delighted to recognize members who are committed to its development; those who show hard labour and total dedication to the mission and purpose of the organization. For July 2023, we are pleased to announce and congratulate Mehdi Scoubeau!

Meet Mehdi Scoubeau

Mehdi Scoubeau is a Space Systems Engineer with more than 7 years of experience both at ESA and in the industry, currently working on deep space exploration missions at GomSpace in Luxembourg. Mehdi has an Aerospace Engineering Degree from ISAE-Supaero in Toulouse, France and a M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Mons in Belgium. Moreover,  he has been an active member of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) for more than five years, supporting events around the world.. Next to the space passion, he likes to read, boulder and run.

Mehdi’s role as part of the SGAC team:

Regional Event Coordinator for the last 3+ years, I have been supporting SGAC Events for more than 5 years now. As such, I coordinate an international team whose purpose is to bridge the gap between our different events and to support the event organizers and their teams the best we can.

Mehdi, share with us your reaction to receiving the nomination:

I am very excited to receive this nomination for the second time now since I started working at SGAC! It is even more meaningful now that I will soon leave my role to leave the place to the next motivated SGAC member ready to step up.

What learnings have you got for those considering joining SGAC?

There are many ways of getting involved with SGAC, with a wide range of intensity, from attending a 1-day event to spending several hours per week working together on an event, a project or a paper. And any level of engagement is the right one so if you are curious, start by joining one of our events!  

Would you like to share with us a special quote you feel guided by, or how would you motivate others to stay focused on their goals?

We are all sometimes overwhelmed by the amount of work needed to achieve one goal, whether it is regarding career, sport, chores or hobby. What helps me is to always remember to not get stuck by thinking the mountain is simply too high but to look down, realize you have feets and take the first step, even if it is a small one. Step by step, you’ll get there!
