“By the end of 2020, let’s create a world where university students can participate in practical space projects in more than 100 countries”


UNISEC-Global's primary objective is to help create a world where space science and technology is used by individuals and institutions in every country, rich or poor, and offers opportunities across the whole structure of society - whether academic, industrial or educational - for peaceful purposes and for the benefit of humankind.

UNISEC-Global is an international nonprofit body, consisting of local-chapters across the world. Since its establishment in November 2013 in Japan, UNISEC-Global has provided a forum every year to promote practical space development activities, mainly at university level, such as designing, developing, manufacturing, launching and operating micro/nano/pico satellites and rockets, including their payloads. University students, young researchers, their tutors and other stakeholders around the world participate in the annual UNISEC-Global Meeting. We have an average of more than 130 participants from about 33 countries in each Meeting.

Moreover, it encourages its members (mainly through the Points of Contact) to establish local chapters-UNISEC branch offices, which are independently managed and operated- in their respective countries. As a consequence of establishing such local chapters, UNISEC-Global has been developing a global communication network via which it shares information and builds international connections between those interested in seeing space applied to local and global social issues.
