Succeed in Space

As part of the Reinventing Space Conference 2016, UKSEDS and the Space Generation Advisory Council organised Reinventing Space Careers, aimed at students, graduates, and young professionals who want to succeed within the space sector. Up to 100 attendees will gather for a series of panels and workshops on careers within the space industry.

This parallel stream allows attendees to experience a forward thinking day aimed at their future careers, whilst allowing them to attend the main conference keynote talks and network with potential employers.

Space Placements in INdustry (SpIN) will host their Placement Showcase event throughout the morning, with Reinventing Space Careers being held in the afternoon.

The event will be held on Wednesday, 26th October 2016 at The Royal Society in London.

Tickets are now sold out. If you missed out, be sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter, and subscribe to our newsletter.
