The Final Event of the 2021 IPMC Young Professionals Workshop will take place on Sunday 24 October.

Each Session will cover results on all of the following topics:

  • Topic 1: Management of remote collaboration in the space industry – How to collaborate remotely, either across teams in interdisciplinary projects or across different functions within an organization, without losing informal opportunities for information exchange?

  • Topic 3: Knowledge management for the Generation Z: how, when, and what do Young Professionals choose to learn? – Which education and knowledge management strategies are best suited to motivate and empower the future workforce and ensure engagement?
  • Topic 4: Project management practices for enabling short term and rapid turnaround activities for space projects – Why and how should Project Management embrace and encourage this dramatic change towards more rapid design timelines?
  • Topic 5: Successful outreach practices in the space sector – How can outreach be improved by exploiting a combination of technical expertise and communication expertise in teams or organizations?
