EMER-GEN™: Enhancing Your Career in Space

The first annual EMER-GEN™ is a joint initiative of the AMOS Conference and SGAC. The program is designed especially for young professionals and students (35 and under) enthusiastic about careers in space.

With the help of advisors from industry, government, academia and NGOs, we created an experience that offers:

  • Mentoring with renowned space specialists from the public sector (military and civil), private sector, and nongovernmental organizations
  • Networking with other young professionals
  • Short courses led by experts drawn from an array of fields related to space situational awareness
  • Professional Development sessions to enhance your effectiveness in a global environment
