Our first experience “Space Mentors in Universities” at UCL was a success !
Nearly 80 students came to listen to our 4 speakers : Paul Counet from EUMETSAT, Michel Gruslin from SPACEBEL, Xavier Maufroid, EC GALILEO from The European Commission and André Jadot from EUROSENSE.
The students were pleasantly surprised by the initiative and interested in the event, the speakers from their part enjoyed it and are ready for a new experience!!
Our idea to make a yearly presentation of the core-business of all three space areas, i.e. engineering, applications, research, in all Belgian universities and engineering schools, while inviting all the students in the faculties of sciences and applied sciences is the best way to inform and interest the students in Space!
