Brussels Local Organising Team

We are a dedicated and motivated team of six researchers and science communication officers involved in space science and working at the Space Pole Site in Uccle, in the Southern part of Brussels.

We have some many wonderful women in science in Belgium. It’s time for the public to meet them and a Soapbox Science event is just the best format to make this happen. We hope that our speakers and their passion will be an inspiration for the future generations of scientists.

Find out about our event on 24th June 2023 here
