Satellites Symposium in Athens 2019

EUROAVIA Athens is an Affiliated Society of EUROAVIA, the European Association of aerospace students. As a result, one of the basic aspects of our activities is to show the international character of the team and to connect with the other Affiliated Societies around the world. We manage to do so by organizing and participating in International Events hosted by EUROAVIA International or the Affiliated Societies.

For this academic year, 2018-2019, we decided to organize our own International Event. It will be a Symposium on “Satellites” and it will take place in Athens, on the third week of April 2019. It will be organized exclusively by the members of EUROAVIA Athens, who will take care of the hospitality of the 25 participants for the whole week. It is notable that some of the lectures will by open for the public to participate in order to furtherly promote the field of aeronautics and aerospace engineering among the academic community of Athens.

The event will be composed of:

  • Lectures: the speakers will be professionals (scientists & engineers) who work for some of the biggest companies in the field of aerospace engineering and renowned professors.
  • Technical Workshops: that will be conducted by professors and members of EUROAVIA Athens
  • Soft Skills Trainings: that will be conducted by the trainers of EUROAVIA
  • Company Visits: guided visits to the facilities of companies related to the subject of the Symposium (“Satellites”) or generally the field of aeronautics and aerospace engineering
  • Cultural Activities: apart from the technical knowledge that will be acquired by the participants, they will be able to experience the Greek hospitality and culture. In fact, they will taste traditional Greek dishes, walk around the picturesque alleys of Plaka and participate in plenty of other cultural activities.
  • Cultural Night: happening in which every participant brings a traditional drink and dessert from his/her country and presents it to the rest of the team
  • Final Dinner: formal dinner that takes place in the last night of the Symposium before the departure of the participants.

We are working on the Symposium for almost a year in order to offer to the participants an unforgettable experience, hoping that they will learn useful information, gain knowledge, communicate with students from all over Europe and generally enjoy their trip to Greece!
