YouSpace in university meets students and researchers

Today, contrary to some beliefs, the space sector is in good shape and recruits!! Unfortunately, the lack of highly qualified graduates in our country, pushes the industry to look for talents abroad. Estimations indicate that 12.000 jobs will open up in the European space industry within the next 10 years.

You can be this talent! The mission of YouSpace is to give the opportunity to improve your future professional choice in the space sector by meeting, discussing and maybe contracting a mentoring relationship. Certainly the best way to help you to find your path!
