Year 2020 has started and LiftOff has taken up new challenges. This year LiftOff will be a two day event, bringing together more than 200 students and even more companies from the space industry. This year’s event will be the biggest Sweden’s Space Job Fair ever, with new kinds of activities and guests from all around the world. We’ll provide an encouraging environment and the opportunity for more open conversations between companies and students.
Currently we’re contacting companies and prominent people form the space industry. Stay in touch with us on social media to get the latest updates.
LiftOff 2019 was a successful event, which gathered together more than 150 space students and nine companies:
European Space Agency (ESA)
Swedish Space Corporation (SSC)
Institute for Space Physics (IRF)
Luossavaara-Kirunavaara Aktiebolag (LKAB)
The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration – Försvarets materielverk (FMV)
PASQ Space Qualification (PASQ)
Arctic Business Incubator
European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Associationn (EISCAT)
Companies presented detailed information about their work in the space industry and answered questions from interested students. After the presentations there was a job fair, where company representatives got together with students and discussed the requirements and details about working for each company.
A new year, and a new event is ahead of us. The project group is working hard, and will only work harder leading up to the event. Here we will keep you up to date on what will happen during the event, and what we are doing to make sure that you get the most out of it.
