Succeed in Space

As part of the Reinventing Space Conference 2017, UKSEDS and the Space Generation Advisory Council have 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 and network with potential employers.

The event will be held on Wednesday, 25th October 2017 at Strathclyde University Technology & Innovation Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.

Tickets are available here. Each ticket holder will be entered into a draw to win tickets to An Evening with Astronaut Chris Hadfield.
