The Italian Rocket Engineering Student Summit is the annual gathering where Italian university rocketry teams meet and present pitches on various themes. 

This Second Edition of the event is organized by the THRUST Team in the beautiful city of Padua. The convention will take place in the city center, specifically inside the Bo Palace in the Galileo Galilei Great Hall, the very place where the renowned scientist delivered his lectures.

The teams attending the meeting include THRUST, Red Propulsion, PoliTO Rocket Team, ICARUS, SkyWard, Space Eagle, Sapienza Rocket Team, UniNA Rocket Team and DOPE Aerospace. These university projects share a common goal: launching their own rockets!

Thanks to the collaboration with the Industrial Engineering Department (DII) of the University of Padua, this fantastic event can take place. During this summit, all invited teams will have the opportunity to present their projects and there will be also some remarkable speakers. 

Among them are PLD Space from Spain and T4i from Italy, market leaders in rocket crafting and innovative companies working on propulsion systems for rockets, respectively. Additionally, there will be presentations on the IRIDE program, one of the largest satellite projects in Europe, conducted by the Italian Government, ASI and ESA, as well as CISAS “G. Colombo,” the Padua University study center for space activities. Last but not least, this year’s IRESS will host the Acrobatic Team of the Italian Air Force, with Captain G. Morello as the event’s speaker.

IRESS took place on May 7th in the afternoon, from 3pm to 7pm.

Thanks to all of you for coming!
