YouSpace at Vub/Ulb

Monday, 7 November, 2016 - 19:00
Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus
Evening seminar & networking event

YouSpace logoThe space sector is expanding quickly in Belgium and Europe. The last few years saw a quickly diversifying and growing job market in space research and industry. Estimations indicate that 12.000 jobs will open up in the European space insustry within the next 10 years. Those job opportunities will not only target engineers and astrophysicists, but will also require larger numbers of specialists in other fields, such as environmental sciences, law or medicine.

This joint event by ULB and VUB will allow students and researchers to learn about job opportunities in the space sector and get in touch with representatives of space industry.
