Join us for an exciting online half-day event focused on “Beginning the New Lunar Journey for Humanity.” This event aims to bring together space professionals from across Europe, representing academia, industry, and student associations, to promote expertise and research interests in lunar space exploration.

Our goal is to foster collaboration and networking among stakeholders, including student communities, academic institutions, and industry representatives, creating a dynamic and engaging event.

The topics addressed will revolve around future lunar space exploration activities and will consider interdisciplinary perspectives from sciences, engineering, economy, and health, thus reflecting the multidimensional nature of this exciting field.

Join us as we embark on this journey together and celebrate International Moon Day with a wide representation of space professionals from across Europe. Let’s unite in exploring new frontiers and advancing humanity’s lunar exploration endeavours.
