Switch to Space 4
Theme: “Space for a Safer World”

Pre-registration is open

Students and young graduates are usually not aware of career opportunities in the space sector and prefer to specialize or start working in traditional sectors.
Switch to Space aims to fill this gap by gathering students from different disciplines to introduce them to the opportunities offered by the space industry.
The message that S2S wants to send to them is that the space sector is not only innovative and challenging but is also becoming an attractive and growing business sector.
