CentraleSupélec joins forces with the European Space Agency to launch the ESA_Lab @ CentraleSupélec. Objective: to develop interest in and knowledge of peaceful space exploration activities and the transversal applications which result from them, such as climate monitoring, Earth observation, security, sustainability, management of risks, the space economy…
Within this framework, visits, conferences, innovative thematic training will be organized, carried out by different teaching and research teams. The aim is to encourage new CentraleSupélec engineers to take over this new economic area, via, among other things, the European Copernicus program. The School is therefore implementing, with its Sondra laboratory, with the assistance of ESA and the Research and User Support Copernicus service, a sequence of courses making students aware of the United Nations sustainable development goals and the use of satellite images for applications ranging from the environment to security.
On the occasion of the implementation of this agreement, a round table entitled « Climate Change, urgency and responsibility » is offered to students of CentraleSupélec at the Joël Rousseau theater with the participation of :
- Claudie Haigneré, astronaut and ESA advisor
- Etienne Klein, physicist and philosopher, director of research at CEA (LARSIM)
