LDE NL Space Campus Summer School

Monday 16 August 2021 - Friday 20 August 2021


This year the first 5-day Summer School will be held from August 16 to 20 for students from Leiden, Delft and Erasmus Universities. Applications are now open!


During the week you will meet and learn about the various space programs, developments and research activities at the three universities and go on a tour of space agencies (ESA ESTEC, Netherlands Space Office), institutes and industry in South-Holland. Starting at the NL Space Campus in Noordwijk at ESA-ESTEC, the technical heart of ESA, you will tour the cities of Leiden and Delft before returning to Noordwijk. During the week, you will meet many experts, learn about the basics and recent developments. This way you can work on your team’s challenge fully prepared. 

The week also includes several fun and non-space events. You will get to know the other participants as well as learn about each other’s strengths, knowledge and approaches to problem solving. This is important because you will need to combine your strengths to work in interdisciplinary teams to solve space sector challenges that require insight and knowledge from different backgrounds. You will therefore grow many (soft)skills such as collaboration, communication and creative thinking. 

To stimulate team building, socialising and networking, we have included dinners on Monday, Thursday and Friday. These are combined with project team building, networking drinks, an activity on the beach next to ESA ESTEC, a project presentation and an open barbecue with networking possibilities at the end of the week.

Apply through this link and dedicate your time during the Summer School, before July 2nd.
