The SGAC Croatia Webinar Series aims to inspire and motivate university students and young professionals in Croatia and abroad to grow a career in the space industry.
Inspired by the motivational stories from talented SGAC members from all around the world, the SGAC team in Croatia aims to bring the same excitement about space and self-development in Croatia and the region.
A series of 8 webinars will host local experts in various fields such as space science and engineering, space policy, space business and others, and give them a floor to share their projects, ideas, and experiences with the community.
Everyone is welcome to attend and will be able to interact with lecturers at the end of each webinar session.
The first webinar in this series will be about SGAC (Space Generation Advisory Council), the largest global organization of university students and young professionals in the space industry. SGAC is a permanent observer at the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS). It operates in 6 regions on 6 continents, gathers more than 15.000 members coming from more than 150 countries. One of them is Croatia. In this webinar you can learn more about the organization itself, how to join and contribute to its activities from a professional with the first-hand experience working in the satellite industry and volunteering at SGAC.
