Who are we?

UNISON UNIsec Student OrganisatioN

UNISON was established by UNISEC in 2003 to support Japanese students who are eager to participate in aerospace development activities. UNISON is an organization established by students and managed only by students. UNISON offers students the opportunity to participate in big projects and other activities related to space development. These experiences enable them to exchange their creative ideas and corporate with each other. We expect that they broaden their outlooks and deepen their relationships through the opportunities. Besides, we try to bring up those who will develop new technological fields by themselves in the future. UNISON Italy was established in July 2015 in correlation with UNISEC Italy due to the collaboration between the Faculties of Aerospace Engineering of University of Bologna and La Sapienza, University or Rome. The Polytechnic University of Turin joined UNISEC Italy university consortium since October 2015 and now is ready to start all the UNISON related activities.
