What is a SpaceUp?

The first ever SpaceUp took place in San Diego in 2010. But what exactly is a “SpaceUp“?
SpaceUps are space “unconferences” where, as the name suggests, participants decide the topic, the schedule and the structure of the event. Everyone is, indeed, encouraged to give a talk, a round-table session or to just simply share ideas about space exploration, space engineering, astronomy and so on.


From 2010 the SpaceUp community has grown and many unconferences were held around the world. Here in Italy there were the SpaceUp Rome in 2015 and the SpaceUp Milan in 2016.
SpaceUp Pisa will be, so, the third Space Unconference in Italy!
