On Friday 25 March, the Flemish space sector will be organising in Leuven a seminar “The Flemish space economy: inspiring, innovating, stimulating, connecting” and a job fair with companies and organisations from the space sector.
The seminar takes place in the context of the Belgian Astronaut Week and is organised in response to the approval of the Flemish impulse programme for the space economy (Flanders Space). This event was planned for the autumn of 2021, but was postponed due to the Corona measures.
The programme is aimed at companies, professionals and education. STEM students with ambitions to start a career in space can get in touch with Flemish space actors via a job fair on 25 March. The job fair starts at 9.30 am and ends around 6 pm.
Flemish Minister for Innovation Hilde Crevits will present the main lines of the Flemish space programme during the seminar. Astronaut Frank De Winne will also be present and will shed light on recent developments in this fascinating field. Experts from the sector and from the European Space Agency (ESA) complete the programme.
