Deadline: 31 January 2018
The Drop Tower Experiment Series is a fellowship programme of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) in which students can learn and study microgravity science by performing experiments in a drop tower.
Location: The Bremen Drop Tower in Germany is a ground-based laboratory with a drop tube of a height of 146 meters, which can enable short microgravity experiments to be performed in various scientific fields.
- Fluid Physics
- Material Science
Duration: February 2018 – February 2019
- The Programme is open to research teams from entities that are Member States of the UN.
- Teams must consist of up to 4 Bachelor, Master and/or PhD students who must be recommended by an academic supervisor.
- It is further required that the proposed experiment be an integral part of the students’ syllabuses, that is, part of a Bachelor thesis, a Master thesis, a PhD thesis, or another form of research project associated with the applicants’ studies at the respective university.
- Completed application form, properly recommended by the applicant’s institution, to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org both in PDF format containing the signature page, and in MS WORD (size limit of up to 10 MB is allowed).
- The applicants should also mail the fully completed original application form to the following address: Office for Outer Space Affairs, United Nations Office at Vienna, Vienna International Centre, P.O. BOX 500, A-1400 Vienna, AUSTRIA.
- The selected research team will be offered financial support exclusively for travel purposes.
- This may include the provision of a round-trip air ticket between the participants’ international airport of departure and Bremen, Germany.
- En-route expenses or any changes made to the air ticket must be the responsibility of the participants.
