News, Updates and Events

GSO organises internal events, some regularly such as quarterly meetings, and others more sporadically such as workshops.

The organisation has also taken part in external events, such as the 2022 International Astronautical Congress in Paris.

Git Workshop

Prague Scientific Workshop

GSO was invited to present at this year’s Scientific Workshop, organised by the Space Master Consortium, which took place at the Czech Technical University in Prague, on the 23rd October 2023.

This was a fantastic opportunity for GSO to showcase itself to the Consortium partners and to the representatives of some of the leading space companies in the Czech Republic, as well as to network with Space Master alumni.

2023 Kick-Off

If you are not in a project but are looking to join one, then you may be interested in Kick Off. During Kick Off, the projects based at the Space Campus will present their projects to students, and will also start recruiting new people into their projects. If you want to join a project, then this is a great chance to do that. 

This event if open to everyone, you can join in person, from 8.45 on Friday September 1st in room B/C, or you can join online in a Zoom room.

Here’s the link to this room: 

I’ll explain how the recruitment process will take place, and you’ll be able to sign up in person at the event, or online afterwards if necessary. The presentations will be made available online after the event too.

If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to get into contact.
