The Dutch Partners

Space Society Twente

Space Society Twente is a student association for everyone who has an interest in space exploration, astronomy, space engineering and space policy. The two core philosophies of the Space Society Twente are that anyone can be involved in the opportunities and challenges of space engineering, and that space itself needs to become more accessible to research and industry. That binds our societies.

On Wednesday June 30, Space Society Twente’s chairman Egor Tamarin and Ton Marée, chairman of the NVR, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in order to express the will to work together more closely.

We are looking forward to a bright future together!
