SCK•CEN Space summer school

For more than 15 years, SCK•CEN plays an important role in the pioneering research to enable future human space exploration, for example to the Moon or Mars. We are actively contributing to several space flight experiments as well as numerous Earth-based space analogs.

The Space Summer School is a multidisciplinary and international learning event for highly-motivated PhD students, early-stage researchers and professionals from a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds (biomedical scientists, physicists, (bio-)engineers, …), with an interest in life sciences and physical & medical health challenges associated with human space exploration. It combines theoretical classes, practical exercises and technical visits in several domains related to space research and development.
