Sun, Space, STCE, and Sangria!

4th SSEA logo (small circle)The Solar-Terrestrial Centre of Excellence that combines research on the Sun, space and earth at the Belgian Space Pole will be present at the 4th Symposium on Space Educational Activities (SSEA), a European Space Agency-led congress that will be hosted by the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech in April in Barcelona. SSEA provides a forum for university students, professionals working in education, and other young professionals to present and discuss their experiences organising, running and/or participating in educational activities related to Space.

Sponsoring this event, STCE will promote its educational and outreach activities, with a special focus on the Space Weather Introductory Course (SWIC). This course familiarises space weather advisory staff, both military and civilian, with the science behind space weather as well as the services offered by our forecaster centre.

SSEA is an annual world congress for the young promises of the space sector. Anyone from undergraduate and graduate students, to postdocs and professors are welcome to present their works in space-related fields. This is meant to be a student-focused conference, so student projects are strongly encouraged. Note that there are different scholarships available for students.

The event will take place next April 27–29 th 2022 in Barcelona (Spain). A long-awaited opportunity to catch up with colleagues in person, after the pandemic outbreak. Join the STCE and don’t miss the opportunity to discuss your research in a world landmark as Barcelona! Social events will include interesting and cultural activities, to further enrich your experience.

Everyone interested is invited to submit abstracts. The Call for Abstracts will be open from 14th June to 1st of November 2021. More information can be found in the conference website:

The Organising Committee and the STCE will welcome you there with enthusiasm!
