The GALAXIE Club: Space Stakeholders in Occitanie
Based at Cité de l’espace, the GALAXIE Club brings together around a hundred companies and institutions, which represent 18,000 industrial and service jobs in the Toulouse area.The GALAXIE Club works to develop the space sector and the regional economy by sharing its taste for technological adventure and entrepreneurship.Over time, having celebrated twenty years of existence in 2021, the GALAXIE Club has gradually become a key and essential facility for the space industry. While its members are not all from that business sector, they are all passionate about space and the infinite magic it offers.
That’s why the GALAXIE Club supports Cité de l’espace on a daily basis and is proud to promote it, help it to develop its activities and increase its profile. It regularly organises events here, particularly its monthly meetings, its SPACE Breakfasts and its Dinner-Debate evenings.
In a setting which is conducive to conviviality and discussion, as well as action, the GALAXIE Club aims to respond to the challenges posed by the globalised economy in which its members exist, by enabling stakeholders to discuss, organise themselves and act.
For members it is also a favoured way to combine the pleasant and the useful as they meet their professional and social responsibilities, by enabling them to act to develop and promote their organisation, and more widely the entire regional economic fabric.
