What is the EUSDC?

Set up to 100 years in the future, the European Space Design Competition (EUSDC) is an exhilarating space settlement design challenge structured as a simulation of life in industry. Up to 200 individuals transform into company representatives competing in companies of up to 50 for a lucrative contract offered by the Foundation Society. Through the realm of space, the EUSDC aims to inspire and expose participants to the vast potential of future study, or even a career, in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Mathematics). The EUSDC is free-to-enter and open to all aged 15-18 living in European countries.
