SGAC Russia

Russia has a great history of space exploration, having launched the first satellite and the first man in space. Its contribution to the space sector development is enormous and still continues to grow. Despite having gone through many changes and obstacles in recent decades, Russia still occupies a leading position in the space sector. Space achievements give inspiration and hope for people all over the country. SGAC Russia is here to make it easier for the Russian university students and young professionals to build a stronger network, enhance their voice in space policy, and develop their leadership skills!

The interest of youth to space industry is rapidly growing. It is also important to mention the fact, that Russian Space Agency and Ministry of Youth Policy continues some space outreach projects and organizes programs for young people.

Currently there are no appointed NPoCs, but for more information please contact the Regional Coordinators for Europe.
