Canadian Space Agency Information Session

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA), in partnership with the National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), invites you to an information session on supporting the health and performance of astronauts during deep space missions, including space exploration medical capabilities and synergies with technology development and research that address similar terrestrial health challenges.

You will also hear from companies and researchers who have experience developing technologies and conducting research for space, and learn about potential opportunities to play a role in support of astronaut healthcare and performance in future deep space manned exploration missions.
