The Odysseus II  project organised its kick-off Meeting held at the Research Executive Agency premises, in Brussels, on 21 January 2015 and at the Signosis premises, in Brussels, on 22 January 2015.

It was a successful start of an ambitious project, aiming to inspire young people from all over Europe and to engage them in space exploration, through a series of educational activities, which will combine scientific learning with hands-on experiences.   Through the organisation of a fun oriented educational contest, which will be organized in multi rounds and which will target all pupils and students in Europe, wherever they are living and irrespective of their cultural background and the language they speak, the project will foster the development of qualified scientists, engineers and technicians in areas relevant to the priorities of the EU space policy.
