ActInSpace brest || An international innovation contest lead by CNES and ESA

ActInSpace #Brest

Maritime, modern and dynamic, Brest is the most western metropolis of France. Also known as “the city at the end of the world”, Brest is a must for space applications and technology transfer, particularly in the maritime field. Indeed, many renowned institutions and companies in the space sector are part of the French space ecosystem such as Ifremer, CLS, Booster MoreSpace, GIS BreTel and Technopôle Brest-Iroise.  

Located in the heart of the Capucins workshops, an exceptional heritage site, the Village by CA Finistère will welcome students, researchers, amateurs or simple enthusiasts for this international hackathon designed to promote the creation of startup by using and adapting space technologies to our daily life. During this hackathon, the teams of 3 to 5 participants will have to take up one of the challenges put forward by CNES, the ESA and other sponsors within 24 hours.

Come and give your team the opportunity to present your idea during the Toulouse Space Show (June 26th and 27th) and try to win the National First Prize to have the once in a lifetime experience of flying in weightlessness aboard an Airbus Zero-G or the International First Prize for viewing the launch of an Ariane in Guyana.

There are no prerequisites to participate in this 24 hours event!

ActInSpace #Brest is organised locally by Technopôle Brest-Iroise and supported by European project Proto Atlantic, Booster Morespace and GIS BreTel. It will be held at Village by CA Finistère.
