Individual short courses of 2-3h length in space life sciences to university students, professors, researchers and professionals. Format: 2 x 1h lectures followed by 1h Q&A session. In general, number of attendees capped at 25 to maximise opportunity for Q&A interaction. Example courses:
Social Isolation & Confinement: Lessons Learned from Space Missions
Medicine in Outer Space: Challenges & Achievements
Discussing Space Analogues: Earth, Air & Water
Certificate of participation issued to all attendees.
Extended courses, customised to the needs of the host university/institution and audience. Format: 5-10+ lecture series given over a period of weeks/months, with or without multiple choice assessment of learning. Example courses:
Human Space Exploration - covering main aspects of the presence of astronauts in space, including human body/mind adaptation to the space environment, microgravity countermeasures, space analogues on Earth, space tourism and future Moon and Mars missions.
Human Physiology in the Aerospace Environment - covering altitude related problems of hypoxia & hyperventilation, cabin pressurisation and dysbarism, decompression sickness, vision & visual illusions, vestibular system & spacial disorientation, G-Force effects, and more.
Attendee numbers set by host institution. Recent examples of successfully delivered courses include:
Fundación Gloria de Kriete, Oportunidades program, El Salvador, 10 lecture series, 200+ pre-university students
Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Romania, 70+ undergraduate students.

Webinars - one-off or series
We host and organise live online seminars (in English or Portuguese), transforming presentations into real-time conversations between audiences from anywhere in the world, and giving a platform for viewers to submit questions and comments in an interactive experience.
Currently, in partnership with CEMCA (Clube de Estudantes de Medicina e Ciências da Vida), the InnovaSpace Portuguese Hub organises monthly webinars (format 1h lecture/30 min Q&A session), with invited speakers and audiences from Portuguese speaking countries, such as Portugal, Brazil & Angola. Our goal is to build a network of people and institutions with an interest in space sciences/digital health, and who share the same language.
