Once a year CNES awards about a hundred research grants in the domain of engineering sciences (orbital and space transport systems), and those sciences which make use of space equipment (sciences of the cosmos, Earth, and microgravity) to young French and foreign scientists who have an interest in space.
E-Space & Science
The E-Space&Science scientific bulletin of the CNES is a regular publication aiming to provide information about the work of the scientific teams involved in space research programmes. This online bulletin accompanies the publication in peer reviewed scientific journals reporting significant results obtained with the support of CNES.
The bulletin is written for a public of scientists or passionates including, the scientific community and particularly scientists collaborating with the CNES, students, teachers and professors as well as journalists, scientific medias and museums.
Future scientific launches
The second flight of ESA’s newest launch vehicle has been completed from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana to deploy the Proba-V, VNREDSat-1 and ESTCube-1 satellite payloads.
From 24 to 26 May, the first SpaceUp Paris event is being organized by a community of bloggers with a passion for space. An innovative initiative that CNES is supporting by hosting a kick-off session on 24 May at the agency’s Launch Vehicles Directorate, focusing on Ariane 6.
