SGAC Croatia Webinar Series: Eight webinars about space as an interdisciplinary field

The SGAC team in Croatia includes 14 active members and 50+ regular members from different cities all around the country. The SGAC Croatia Webinar Series aimed to inspire and motivate university students and young professionals in Croatia and abroad to grow a career in the space sector. Influenced by the stories from talented SGAC members from all around the world, the SGAC Croatia team invested their passion and creativity to bring the same excitement about space and self-development in Croatia and nearby regions. A series of eight webinars hosted local experts in diverse fields, such as space science and engineering, space policy, space business and others, and gave them a floor to share their projects, ideas, and experiences with our community. Everyone was welcome and had the opportunity to interact with the lecturers at the end of each webinar session. This webinar series was organised in partnership with the Adriatic Aerospace Association, A3, an independent organisation established with the objective of stimulating research and development in the aerospace sector in Croatia.. SGAC and A3 signed the Memorandum of Understanding in March 2021. This webinar series was the first time SGAC and A3 partnered together.. All episodes were recorded and are available on the official SGAC Youtube channel.
