Davide Petrillo, SGAC Executive Director, has been elected as one of the new vice presidents of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF).
Following the growing escalation of the Covid-19 outbreak around the world, the IAF informed us that the International Astronautical Congress – IAC in Dubai will not be taking place this year, but will be postponed (refer: IAF Statement). They are in the process of re-assessing the overall schedule of IACs and will inform us within the coming weeks about the new dates.
The Next Generation’s View on Space for Emerging Countries was organised by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) on the 25th of April 2019 in Marrakesh, Morocco during the Global Conference on Space for Emerging Countries (GLEC 2019) organised by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) and the Centre Royal de Télédétection Spatiale (CRTS), with the support of the Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES).
The first SGAC/IAF Seminar took place in Montevideo, Uruguay, in the framework of the Global Space Applications Conference (GLAC 2018). The event was a complete success with the participation of over 80 students and young professionals from 14 countries.
