Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


The Portuguese Space Agency and Instituto Superior Técnico were selected by the International Space University to organize the 2022 edition of the Space Studies Program. The course will bring to Portugal more than one hundred students, professors and space specialists
from ESA, NASA and other space agencies.

The International Space University (ISU) has awarded the Portuguese Space Agency (Portugal Space) and the Instituto Superior Técnico (University of Lisbon) the honour of organizing the next edition of the Space Studies Program, which will take place between July and September 2022.


Inspired by Portugal’s connection to the sea, the Portuguese proposal foresees that SSP22 will focus on the theme of Earth observation, the ocean and climate change. The program, which has strong support from all departments and research centers connected to Instituto Superior Técnico, will include student contact with the Portuguese space ecosystem, such as field trips to research centers and national companies, with start-ups among them.
