L'X students will participate in EuroTech High Level Event 2019
EuroTech Universities Alliance High Level Event 2019 "Engineering (for) Europe's Future" will take place in Brussels on December 12th, 2019. A high-level panel debate and an interactive showcase of successful student teams are on the program.
With its political leadership and policy priorities under review, Europe is at a crossroads in 2019. Pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge and moderating technological progress is crucial in finding sustainable solutions to the major challenges which society is facing today. Education is key in fostering a future generation that can promote the smart, sustainable and socially acceptable use of new technologies. Recognising the role of young talent, the Commission president-elect gave a strong signal in the right direction when recently unveiling her plans to bring education, research and innovation under one roof. Coinciding with the arrival of the new Commissioners and the EU’s discussion on future policy priorities, Eurotech Alliance event will stimulate a timely debate on the potential of future engineering science and education.

Moreover, students from each Eurotech university will expose their successful scientific projects. l'X will be represented by the X-Rocket student project. The student team launched in July 2019 an experimental rocket as part of C'Space national launch campaign in order to study the concept of plasma stealth. Students measured the radar cross section of the rocket, demonstrated in the laboratory the feasibility of the concept of plasma stealth and worked on the miniaturizing of the device.
