ASI promotes the training and technical-professional growth in the field of aerospace science and technology and their applications

The sector of space is full of opportunities for young people and the ASI has always been a point of reference in terms of scientific training, circulation of aerospace culture and promotion of educational initiatives and projects targeted at schools, universities and students who are passionate about space topics. Space research is continuously evolving and needs new resources to invest in, to keep growing. Because of this, the ASI is focusing on the new generations of students and researchers and is investing in their potential, because the future can become reality only where there is more “space” for young people.
