360° View of Space Activities for Earth Observation Organization Eumetsat
From experienced project controllers to newcomers in administration, all 16 handpicked Eumetsat employees benefited from the International Space University’s Executive Space Course (ESC) – the second edition tailored to Eumetsat’s capacity building needs.
The interdisciplinary introduction to global space activities of this course provides a 360° view of the space sector from space technology to policy. Lectures were delivered by both faculty and experts from ISU, and Eumetsat which also allowed attendees to discover internal expertise. Designing an Earth observation CubeSat was an interactive workshop which aimed amongst other learning outcomes to understand concurrent engineering.
The course concluded with a lively panel discussion – moderated by ISU’s past president Juan de Dalmau – debating the relationship between humanities and social sciences and space – including the future of space.

At the end of the week, participants got a better understanding of the overall space sector and the role of Eumetsat in the space ecosystem. Congratulations to all!
