National Finals

The National Finals in 2021-2022 will be held in Portugal and Italy, with possible competitions in Spain, France, the Netherlands and Germany.

Teams are organised into companies of up to 50 students and over the course of one day, you will go head to head to design a space settlement according to a Request for Proposal (RFP). You will then present your proposal in the form of a presentation to an expert team of judges from academia and industry.

Video Competition

The EUSDC also runs a Video Competition to allow for participants to re-enter the competition if they were unsuccessful in a European National Final.

This entry method requires teams of up to 12 to design a space settlement in accordance to a Request for Proposal (RFP) and create a 3 minute video addressing it. Submitted videos will subsequently be reviewed by a specialist team of judges.

For the 2021-2022 season, the Video Competition is not currently operating. Individuals can register directly for the EUSDC competition.

The aim of the Space Science & Engineering Foundation is to increase engagement in science and engineering for as many students as possible, using space as a vehicle for learning.

We would like to welcome as many schools as possible to the European Space Design Competition. Each listed National Finals includes information specific to that event. Some venues will have a larger capacity than others and may run in a different format (e.g. Digital vs. Onsite).

We require full information about your team’s supervising adult if you are attending a physical competition. It is essential that you provide us with a contact email and telephone number for your accompanying adult.
