ESA Touchdown

European Space Research Technology Centre (ESTEC)

The grande finale of this programme takes place at the European Space Research Technology Centre (ESTEC). ESA has sites in several European countries, but the ESTEC in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is the largest.

  3. Present your impact project to an audience of stakeholders.
