The International Space University (ISU) campus is located in Strasbourg, Alsace, in North East France, and is bordered by the Rhine River to the East, the Vosges mountains to the West, the German plain to the North and the Territoire de Belfort to the South.

Strasbourg is the European Capital and lies along the Rhine River, the natural border between France and Germany. It is home of the Council of Europe, the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights. The city numbers approximately 256,000 inhabitants with a further 200,000 inhabitants in the suburbs which make up the Strasbourg Urban Community.

Every northern hemisphere Summer there is a Space Studies Program held at various rotating locations. The Space Studies Program (SSP) is a graduate level professional development program conducted by ISU since 1988. The curriculum covers the principal space related fields, both non-technical and technical and ranges from policy and law, business and management and humanities to life sciences, engineering, physical sciences and space applications. The shared experience of an international, interactive working environment is an ideal networking forum leading to the creation of an extensive, international, multidisciplinary professional network comprising the program’s alumni (numbering more than 4000 to date), faculty members and visiting lecturers. Through the exchange of ideas and information this network has been successful in advancing projects in such areas as disaster warning and mitigation systems, human health enhancement using space technologies, and has even significantly contributed to the creation of a national space agency. Each year the SSP is held in a different location across the globe. Moving to a new city and country adds an exciting dynamic as well as new resources and expertise to the program.

The SSP is an intense two-month program which offers the participants a unique and comprehensive professional development experience covering all aspects of space programs and enterprises. Disciplines highlighted include space physical sciences; space engineering; space policy, economics and law; space management and business; space and the humanities; space applications; and human performance in space. This program targets young and seasoned professionals from all disciplines as well as post‐graduate university students. The team projects allow participants to refine the topic as a team, and also produce professional quality reports and final presentations, all in the span of a few weeks. Every summer, the SSP takes place in a different location around the world. Recent sessions have convened in Graz, the NASA Ames Research Center, Beijing, Melbourne (Florida), Strasbourg, Montreal and Athens (Ohio).

In the southern hemisphere there is an equivalent SSP during the southern summer.The Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program is an intensive, five week, live-in experience built around an international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary (3 “I”s) educational philosophy for which the International Space University (ISU) is renowned. The program provides a multidisciplinary understanding of the key activities and areas of knowledge required by today’s space professions http://www.isunet.edu/about ... (more)
