Free webinar for students and young professionals: electric propulsion, innovation, career opportunities, work on international projects

Webimar Giesepp MP

On 17 November 2021, a free webinar will be held by professionals representing the world’s and Europe’s leading space organisations. This webinar is dedicated to electric propulsion and industry-related career opportunities for students and young professionals. No previous knowledge or experience in the field of electric propulsion is needed. 

During this event, you will get very concise answers to such questions as:

  • What added value does electric propulsion offer to society and the space community?
  • What career opportunities does the space industry provide young professionals?
  • How do international consortia work on innovation projects? ​

You will get to know how such initiatives as and Switch to Space can help students and young professionals boost their career, find mentors, create networks and spot new opportunities locally and internationally. 

You will also participate in very engaging conversations where experts will share their experience, regrets and success stories during their study period at university – the session “7 recommendations to my younger self at university” – and you will be able to find out everything you always wanted to know about working in a space company (but were afraid to ask).

About the organisers

The webinar is organised by the EU-funded project GIESEPP MP in collaboration with Switch to Space and the project AETHER. 

By proposing a gridded ion engine propulsion system, the Horizon 2020 project GIESEPP MP consortium aims to boost Europe’s competitiveness in the global satellite market. The Horizon 2020 project AETHER aims at the early design of a ram-EP thruster – from the intake to the ionisation and acceleration stages – which would counteract atmospheric drag and keep the spacecraft in a very low Earth orbit. 

Switch to Space is an initiative organised by Its mission is to set up an active network between students, young professionals and space experts through meetings and events. The aims are to facilitate discussion, advice, and coaching and to share passion and enthusiasm for the space sector.
