Gi Group, a world leader of recruitment and staffing services based in Milan, Italy, is renewing its support for the SpaceUp project. Funded by the European Union Research and Innovation Framework Program, the project's objective is to give European startups in the space sector the opportunity to grow and become world-leading companies with the best talent.
After passing through Helsinki, Finland, the Space Academy lands on November 18 and 19 in Bremen, Germany. The event, which will last two days, will make it easier for European entrepreneurs to grow their business in the space sector.
For the first day, participants will enjoy a workshop where they can improve their skills and can obtain information from experts on various topics (investments, types of crowdfunding, more effective business models, or European funding, among others), both in individual sessions as well as group sessions and round tables. The second day will involve different conferences and presentations from 10 selected companies before an audience that represents the space sector around the world.
Candidates eligible to participate in the event will be able to attend both days and will benefit from both the experience and the possibility of establishing important contacts. In addition, 10 companies will be selected, based on their business plans, which will benefit from high-level training, mentoring and travel support.
SpaceUp, which has 10 members from five different European countries and two business organizations across Europe, works to promote and encourage technology transfer, networking, dissemination and meeting with investors, HR specialists, and executive directors of major corporations.
