SpaceNed Young Professionals Network

The ambition of the SpaceNed Young Professionals Network (SNYP) is to establish a network for young professionals working in the Dutch space sector and to provide them with in-depth and broad knowledge, guidance, and interconnection to support their ambition to have a long and fruitful career in the space sector!

Our goal is to set up a network for young professionals under the age of 36 years who are actively working in the Dutch space sector. The SNYP is a diverse and easily approachable group that facilitates the collaboration and personal development of young professionals. Creating a vast platform that will serve as a roundtable for ideas, creativity, knowledge exchange, and connection is an important objective of the SNYP.

To accomplish these goals, the SNYP will promote and support initiatives that will bring together young professionals from the broad range of organizations active in the Dutch space sector. The SNYP will host meetings, organize seminars, company visits and will seek to work closely with YPN’s from other sectors. Besides offering opportunities to grow your professional skills, we will also organize activities where we will pay attention to developing your soft skills. And off course, there will be plenty of opportunities to broaden your personal network and building new friendships during these activities.

A board with young professionals will be formed consisting of a Chairman, a Secretary, a Treasurer, and a Coordinator. The board will be announced at the end of January 2023 along with the first activities.

SpaceNed is purely facilitating, the SpaceNed Young Professionals board will determine the program and content, with input from its YP member base.

We will organize activities on the axis of the following themes:

  • Personal development
  • Innovation
  • Professional & Soft skills
  • Inspiration & experience
