ASTRAIOS – Analysis of Skills, Training, Research and Innovation Opportunities in Space

ASTRAIOS is an H2020 European project that will foster innovation, increase EU competitiveness in the space sector and improve the dynamics of the space entrepreneurships ecosystems.

To achieve this, the ASTRAIOS team will provide an exhaustive view and understanding of the current and future Space curricula and courses offered in the EU-27. The project will also describe the need from the European Space industry in the next 10-15 years and identify actionable ways towards a better alignment between the offered educational programmes and the skills required by the future European space industry.
