The ESA Education and learning Office is delighted to announce that the fourth Symposium on Space Instructional things to do will be hosted by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC) in Spring 2021!

Pursuing the simply call for proposals, introduced before this yr, a number of Universities from throughout ESA’s member states utilized to host the fourthedition of this inspirational symposium. Following cautious evaluation, UPC was last but not least picked and was duly invited to be the next host. 

UPC’s proposal centered on the three wide objectives of ‘a symposium for and by students’ ‘promotion of Europe’s area education and learning to the world’ and ‘Equity, Gender harmony, Variety and Sustainability Goals’.  UPCs internet hosting of the symposium expects to capitalize on the city and region’s burgeoning and numerous area sector as well as the solid history of the city’s many exploration and academic institutes. 

UPC’s rector said: “At UPC, we are delighted with the option of arranging the 4th SSEA all through the fiftieth anniversary of our College, and I individually would like to welcome all the educators, learners and pros keen to attend the symposium and take a look at Barcelona.”

As in preceding editions the symposium will offer a forum for dialogue on the present-day state and upcoming of Space Instructional Activities in Europe and the wider environment, with a specific concentrate on College level excess-curricular things to do, as well as providing learners the opportunity to share their benefits and experiences from these kinds of things to do. 

It is envisaged that the Symposium will catch the attention of College educators and learners as well as people performing on initiatives that ‘bridge the gap’ concerning superior university and College things to do, together with nearby and European firms fascinated in area academic endeavours and their outputs.

Especially the symposium aims:
