The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) has announced the winners of the European Space Leader Award (ESLA) 2024. One of them is Kiira Tiensuu, who acts as a National Point of Contact for Finland at the SGAC.

The European Space Leader Award aims to recognise SGAC members for their contributions to the space field in Europe and to provide an opportunity for interaction between members of the space sector with diverse geographic and professional backgrounds. The winners will be sponsored to attend the 8th European Space Generation Workshop (E-SGW) in Munich, Germany on 31 May and 1 June 2024.

Space Generation Advisory Council is a global network for young space professionals and university students. Kiira Tiensuu and Tiia Tikkala act as SGAC‘s National Points of Contact for Finland.
