Empowering all Women, in Space and on Earth

ESAā€™s Call for CubeSat Proposals now open!

Dear all,

we’re pleased to inform you of the following opportunity provided by our Corporate member ESA.


The European Space Agency (ESA) is offering an exciting opportunity for CubeSat student teams to apply for the next edition of the Fly Your Satellite! educational programme. This opportunity is open to University teams composed of bachelor, master and PhD students from ESA Member States, Canada and Slovenia.

The Fly Your Satellite! programme will support teams working on one, two or three-unit CubeSats with an educational scope. Selected teams will have the unique opportunity of turning their spacecraft design into an operating CubeSat launched to space. This is made possible by professional support from ESA, dedicated training sessions, and access to the state-of-the-art facilities, such as the ESA Academy’s CubeSat Support Facility.

You could join the list of other Fly Your Satellite! teams who have had the chance to learn from their participation in this unique hands-on spacecraft programme. Students will gain significant practical experience in the full lifecycle of an actual space project, with support and mentorship from ESA specialists.
