To participate, you need to form a group of two and prepare a poster presenting ideas or concepts that would enhance international cooperation in one of the following areas:

  • Sustainable long-term life support for moon, Mars, or space stations,
  • Novel Earth observation applications,
  • Ownership and exploitation of space objects (incl. recovered debris/samples, asteroids, planets).
