The Hypatia Mars Association and the Generalitat de Catalunya, represented by the Department of Digital Policies, signed a collaboration agreement in the framework of the Catalan NewSpace Program.
The NewSpace Strategy of Catalonia deploys a program of specific actions to strengthen the ecosystem of the Catalan space sector. Hypatia is part of this sector, offering new role models to inspire the next generations, especially young girls and other under-represented groups in STEM careers.
There are several actions that are part of this collaboration agreement, such as the participation of Hypatia in the first meeting of the Digital Catalonia Alliance in 2021, the 4th STEM Conference on Space Education in 2022, and several outreach actions that will take place in 2023 and that will involve talking to teachers and students about the experiences of Hypatia I at the MDRS.
Hypatia is deeply thankful to Generalitat de Catalunya for its support.
