Conference opportunities for sponsored students

In 2016 ESA offers European students the opportunity to attend the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2016 conference and the International Conference On Space Operations 2016 conference (see below).

ESA Education will provide sponsorship to a select few university students to support their participation in these two conferences. The selection is competitive, and clear priority will be given to students whose abstracts have been accepted by the conference organisers and who have not been sponsored by ESA before.
