About this event
This event is part of European Space Talks, a pioneering awareness campaign inviting the space community to share their space projects and related benefits with our citizens.
Europe’s Next Space Generation is organised by ESA in collaboration with HEC Business School and ESTACA Engineering School, in Paris, France. ESA invites all Universities with a Space curriculum to remotely connect with Paris, where almost 2000 Aerospace students will be attending.
The programme is interactive and full of surprises. The opening starts at 18:00 and will be broadcasted live, followed by an open debate. For centuries, space has been a source of questioning. Astronauts are at the very heart of space issues. They are the most qualified speakers to address a space themed event. During the evening, Claudie Haigneré & Thomas Pesquet will share their own experience and take part in a debate on the future of space activity in Europe. Participants will also connect live with ESA Astronaut Luca Parmitano, during the Beyond mission on the International Space Station. An online voting to collect the students’ views and produce a set of recommendations that will be presented to European Ministers at Space19+, in Seville, Spain, next 27 – 28 November 2019 will conclude the evening.
