WIA-Europe’s 5th Anniversary!

The 65th International Astronautical Congress (IAC)  in Toronto, Canada, will provide the perfect stage for celebrating five years of WIA-Europe. From Sept. 29 – Oct. 3, a series of events initiated by WIA-Europe and organized in close cooperation with WIA and WIA-Canada will offer multiple opportunities for outreach and networking.

On the occasion of this IAC, WIA leaders from the US, Canada and Europe will have their first trilateral meeting to discuss strategies and possible joint activities.
Mark your calendars especially for the traditional IAF/WIA-Europe Networking Breakfast on Wednesday, Oct. 1. We are delighted that Sandra Magnus, former NASA astronaut and  AIAA Executive Director, and Michael Menking, European Director for Earth Observation, Navigation and Science at Airbus DS, are our keynote speakers! Meet WIA leaders from the US, Canada and Europe there and use this opportunity to enlarge your personal network.

Panel discussions in the Global Networking Forum and an IAC Plenary complement the WIA activities at the IAC, gathering female leaders representing space science, industry and agencies as well as intergovernmental organizations from Canada, USA, Africa, Asia and Europe. More details on the events will be announced in time before the IAC.
