Preliminary programme for the Space Group Annual Meeting is available now!

Ecsite Space Group pre-conference workshop "Space for Life"

As agreed during the Space Group workshop "Space for life" held in Trento last June, the next Space Group Annual Meeting will take place at the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, Italy on 3-4 November 2015. One of the goals of the space group, that includes today more than 150 members, is to exchange and design collaborative projects to better share European space activities with the general public.

For 2016 and 2017 three themes have been selected for exploration:

  • Climate change: Monitoring the atmosphere and oceans from Space;
  • The International Space Station: Living and working in Space;
  • Is there life out there?

Representatives from museums and science centres will meet in Milan to discuss possible collaborations on these three themes. This meeting also offers the opportunity to meet with the representatives from space industry and national space agencies. During 2 days, experts in the space field will exchange with museum’s representatives to discuss projects that could be developed and shared with the support of ESA within the Ecsite network.

The event is a unique platform, uniting non-space specialized science centres and museums as well as space related organisations.

Take a look at the preliminary programme of the Annual Meeting with all useful information included in the document below.

The Space group is led by Marc Moutin, Director of Exhibitions at Cité de l’Espace, Toulouse, France; Ana Noronha, Executive Director of Ciência Viva, Lisbon, Portugal, and Maria Menendez, Head of ESA Corporate Exhibitions and Events.
