Join us for a celebration of 20 years of the EPFL Space Center! Since 2003, we have sent a CubeSat into space, hosted and launched startups such as ClearSpace and the Space Sustainability Rating, guided student teams to win international competitions and to send a computer into space, and awarded a Minor in Space Technologies to over 400 students! And that’s just a few of the many space activities that have taken place at EPFL.
So we’re throwing a party! There will be speeches, a look back at the EPFL Space Center over the years, a chance to meet your colleagues and friends, and of course, food and drink.
