The pilot edition of ESA Academy's Clean Space Training Course has been successfully completed! Hosted at ESA Academy's Training and Learning Facility, ESA-ESEC, Belgium, from 11 – 14 February 2020, this new course was a collaboration between ESA's Education and Clean Space Offices. The goal was to offer future engineers' valuable insight into approaches for considering the environmental impact of the entire life cycle of a space mission; and how to design satellites in a more environmentally friendly manner. In attendance were university students from 10 different ESA Member States, who enjoyed lectures delivered by ESA specialists, and an expert from the European Commission.

ESA Academy is looking for 30 highly motivated engineering Master and PhD students with a foundation knowledge of Space System Design to attend the pilot edition of the Clean Space Training Course. This is an outstanding opportunity for students to complement their engineering studies with insight into a vital aspect of future space missions, providing a springboard to become the next generation of leading space engineers. Held between 11 and 14 February 2020 at ESA Academy's Training and Learning Facility in ESEC-Galaxia, Transinne, Belgium, applications are now open until the deadline of 5 January 2020.
Take part in the future exploration of the Moon with the Moon Camp Explorers (intermediate level) or the Moon Camp Pioneers (advanced level) challenge. Submissions are now open for 3D designs of a complete Moon Camp until 25 March.
ESA's Fly Your Satellite! programme is giving the next generation of scientists and engineers the chance to develop CubeSats and operate them in space. Two of the teams taking part in the second cycle of Fly Your Satellite!, EIRSAT-1 (University College Dublin) and LEDSAT (Sapienza University of Rome), have recently concluded testing activities for some of their nano-satellite subsystems, putting them one step closer to launch.
