Reinventing Space Careers and SpIN Placement Showcase

As part of the Reinventing Space Conference 2016, UKSEDS and the Space Generation Advisory Council have organised Reinventing Space Careers, aimed at students, graduates, and young professionals who want to succeed within the space sector. Up to 100 attendees will gather for a series of panels and workshops on careers within the space industry.

Space Placements in INdustry (SpIN) will also host their Placement Showcase event throughout the morning, with Reinventing Space Careers being held in the afternoon.

This parallel stream allows attendees to experience a forward thinking day aimed at their future careers, whilst allowing them to attend the main conference keynote talks and network with potential employers.
