Call for Abstract

UNISEC-Global would like to invite contributions to the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum "Space Education for All" Working Group for Higher Education.

The "Space Education for All" Working Group (SE4A WG) is aiming to:

  1. cultivate the ability of all people to see things from a cosmic perspective and to live strongly to solve the problems of modern society,
  2. utilize the knowledge and technology gained through space research and development in education to foster a sense of adventure, inquisitiveness, and creativity to develop human resources with such rich humanity and an international outlook, and
  3. share methods and good practices of space education and training, examples of space education policies, etc., and build momentum for learning and improving effective space education.

We would like to invite paper proposals for the following topics:

  • Engagement with universities for space education
  • Engagement with industry for higher space education
  • Government/Agency projects, initiatives, and policy to foster higher space education
  • Best-practises for delivering high-quality higher space education

Ideally, these topics should highlight the direct application of space education policy detailing methodology and outcomes. We would also like to invite potential contributors' opinion of topics that they think should be covered in the working group. On this basis, we invite research papers from established scholars in the field.

Please send an abstract of 150-200 words to: space.edu(at)unisec-global.org

Deadline: 1st November 2021 ; 17:00 (JST).
You will be notified if your application has been successful, at the latest, two weeks later.

Please note: selection slots are limited. Presentations will be selected based on the quality of the abstract and alignment with criteria defined above.
