On May 6, using the ZOOM application, the Space Career Paths conference will be held – inaugurating the start of the second stage of the contest. The conference will include 2 blocks of space talks: ‘Space is people and the future is youth’ and ‘My way in space’. The first one will focus on the experiences of companies that host or will host interns under the “Development of human resources in the space sector” program. Company representatives will tell you – Why do they use the program? and What possibilities does it offer? The second panel will concern the winners of the previous editions of the program. Would their history have turned out differently had it not been for the participation in the contest?
