Stay tuned for upcoming calls and initiatives from CRIAQ.
Through the Space Challenge, CRIAQ aims to support a student team working on the issue of sustainable development in space, and to raise awareness of the growing problem of space debris. The exponential increase in space debris and space traffic is currently posing major challenges to space operations and governance. Space faring nations are calling for an end to tests aimed at destroying obsolete satellites in orbit. An announcement to this effect has been made for 2022. The Space Challenge calls on the next generation to contribute to thinking about the sustainable development of space, including space traffic management and space debris mitigation. The aim of the mandate will be to carry out an in-depth study on the theme, according to the work plan proposed in their application file.
The CRIAQ Space Challenge is a golden opportunity for students interested in the aerospace industry, particularly in the issues surrounding space development. Selected students will have the chance to:
The study will be published by CRIAQ at the end of the mission. This will promote the importance of this issue within the industry and stimulate the emergence of new thoughts and solutions. This is a great opportunity for students to develop their careers.
The participants’ main objective is to summarize their understanding of the problem and to come up with a concrete work plan that can be carried out over a 12-week period, and which they will be able to execute themselves. The proposal submitted should contribute to the debate on the sustainable development of space and space debris.
