NANOSTAR: A collaborative platform to provide a relevant training on nanosat technology through Student Challenges
Madrid Aerospace Cluster is partner of this European project funded by the Interreg Sudoe Programme through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project has a planned duration of 30 months and a total budget of 2 million euros. The consortium is composed of 7 universities and 2 aerospace clusters, plus 3 ESA Business Incubation Centres as associates, in France, Spain and Portugal.
The challenge of the project is to provide students with the experience of a real space engineering process that includes all stages, from conception and specifications, to design, assembly, integration, testing and documentation. That is, the whole process through a network that combines high-level engineering careers and entrepreneurial ventures in the area of nanosatellites.
NANOSTAR will allow Southwest Europe to train students with a high level of skills in space engineering and project engineering, so that they are the future main players in the field of nanosatellites.
