MoU between ISU and WIA-E on Cooperation to Support Education in Aerospace Related Activities

WIA

 

The International Space University (ISU) and Women in Aerospace – Europe (WIA-E) sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to seal their existing long-term collaboration and provide a framework for future cooperation.

ISU and WIA-E affirm their common interest in pursuing the highest quality standard in education and professional development in subjects related to the peaceful exploration, development and utilization of space. Some modes of potential collaboration include WIA-E members teaching in the educational programs of ISU, including the ISU Master program, the Space Studies Program, whereas WIA-E may invite ISU faculty and lecturers to deliver seminars in their conferences.

As part of the MoU, ISU will offer discounts to WIA-E members who meet the academic requirements for and are admitted to ISU academic programs or register for ISU professional development programs:
Space Studies Program: -50% (half scholarship)
Master of Space Studies: -50% (half scholarship)
Southern Hemisphere Summer Space Program: -25%
Executive Space Course and other ISU professional development courses: -5%

WIA-E applicants who wish to qualify for these discounts must indicate in their application that they are WIA-E members. ISU will confirm with WIA-E that the applicant is a member in good standing.

Women In Aerospace - Europe is dedicated to expanding women’s opportunities for leadership and increasing their visibility in the aerospace community. WIA-E endeavours to engage and inspire more women to seek careers and advancement in aerospace as one strategic component to filling the workforce needs of the field.
Walter Peeters, ISU President and alumni including Claudia Kessler,
CEO of HE Space and Chair of the WIA-E Board, at IAC11.

"I believe our shared values of diversity and collaboration will serve our common goal of achieving excellence and continued development of the space sector," said Simonetta Di Pippo, WIA-Europe President and Co-Founder.  "WIA-Europe is looking forward to working closely with ISU in the coming months and pursuing exciting projects together."

Walter Peeters, president of ISU comments:
"There is still a striking gender imbalance in the European Space sector. By providing talented women with the right educational background, ISU is hoping to assist in helping to partially close this gap, and therefore this joint initiative is a big step forward. A related aspect is to highlight the role of women in the Space sector, in order to demonstrate the potential career opportunities. Therefore ISU is highlighting the careers of its female alumnae, to discover the dedicated page, please click HERE ."
