Hybrid Hybrid Event
swiss space week conference logo

The Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences (SATW) and its partners present Space Week! Join us to discover Switzerland the space nation.

The global space industry is booming. Half a century after the first space race that led mankind to set foot on the Moon, new public and private actors are redoubling their efforts to explore, understand and use space. This new era opens up tremendous opportunities, but it also presents many challenges.

How does space contribute to improving our life on Earth and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? What role does Switzerland play? Find out from March 28 to April 1 during Space Week.

EPFL Space Day

A journey through space on campus

EPFL associations and research laboratories working in the field of space will introduce themselves to the EPFL community during a day of conferences and workshops. Discover the current projects, career opportunities and actors in this exciting field.

For organisational purposes, register below if you will attend the event live on campus. We are looking forward to seeing on site with us!

For those who really absolutely cannot make it in person, a Zoom link is available down below in the details section.
