Sapienza at UKSEDS 2019

13/03/2019 – Noordwijk – The Netherlands

On the weekend of 2nd-3rd March, Melissa Molseed & Roberta Romanó from the Recruitment team attended the National Student Space Conference (NSSC) 2019. The event was organised by UKSEDS and this year took place at the University of Edinburgh.

Sapienza was glad to connect with many enthusiastic students, and industry and academia representatives regarding both space & defence career opportunities and the ECLIPSE Software Suite.

Sapienza was a Silver Sponsor of the conference this year, so we had the opportunity to give a presentation about the work that the Workforce Solutions Services team do here at Sapienza, as well as explaining about our ECLIPSE Software Suite and in particular the ECLIPSE for Academia platform. With this initiative Sapienza is preparing the next generation of space professionals to get ready for working in industry, by providing the ECLIPSE Software Suite for university CubeSat projects, allowing students to learn about one of the most widely used space sector software.

Did you miss the presentation or the opportunity to talk to us regarding ECLIPSE for Academia and potentially using it for your CubeSat project? Check out the presentation on SlideShare or if you are involved in a project and would like to learn more, contact us by email at We are actively seeking more Universities and Academic Institutions taking part in CubeSat projects to use the ECLIPSE Software.

Regarding the event, Melissa and Roberta said:

It was great speaking with all of the students and academia representatives and informing them about all of the wonderful work Sapienza is doing in the Space & Defence industry. The ECLIPSE for Academia platform is such an incredible opportunity for young people interested in the industry to learn about a tool that has supported over 50 ESA missions including ROSETTA, GAIA, JUICE & EXOMARS. We met a diverse and enthusiastic group of students who are all looking to get a head start in the sector. With the addition of our NewSpace & Satcom Division, on top of ECLISPE for Academia and our heritage in the industry, it seems like we’re perfectly placed to educate and help these young professionals launch their career. We can’t wait to come back next year!
