Our colleague Dr. Jens Kersten, from the Citizen Science department, has recently participated in the International Progamm Management Comitee Young Professionals Workshop, IMPC YP. Dr. Kersten was selected together with other two researchers from Oberpfaffenhofen to be the DLR representatives. The goal of the IPMC YP Workshop is to gather inputs from young professionals in the international space community to gain knowledge about what they need to better develop and to empower the next generation workforce. For that purpose, the conducted research by the working groups is intended to produce thoughtful and well-rounded observations and recommendations on the assigned topics.
The observations and recommendations will be gathered in the IPMC YP Workshop report and delivered to the IPMC participants, their member organizations and the other member organizations of the International Astronautical Federation, IAF. The YP Workshop report will also be made publicly available on the IAF website.
