Our global education initiatives currently operate in Luxembourg, France, Benin, and the US.
Throughout 2015, we pursued a partnership with the University of Luxembourg. Together, we are developing a centre of excellence and innovation for advanced information and communications technology in satellite systems. This initiative is in cooperation with the university’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), and we also finance a chair in Satellite, Telecommunications and Media Law within the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance. Finally, our cooperation agreement with Sacred Heart University Luxembourg covers both educational services for SES employees, and student visits.
In Strasbourg, France, we provide ongoing funding for a scholarship programme within the International Space University (ISU) to support students studying advanced space applications. In Benin, we fund scholarships for students from the African School of Economics (ASE) to attend Princeton University, an SES partner in the US. And in the US, we support the Master’s Programme at the Stevens Institute of Technology, a coeducational research university located in Hoboken, New Jersey.
