Our sincere congratulations to the Top-7 winners!
And thanks to all who participated but didn’t make it further. We encourage you to continue your research and apply for the next 3rd PromoMoon Initiative.
The Top-7 finalists are given an option to submit their updated proposals within April 11 – 17, 2023.
You will find the 2nd PromoMoon Initiative’s updated schedule at https://moonvillageassociation.org/announcement-2nd-promomoon-initiative-for-moon-village-generation-in-honor-of-dr-alexander-degtyarev/
On the final selection, three teams will be selected to receive free-of-charge B2B mentorship. In addition, the teams will be given the opportunity for their work to be featured in a paper to be presented at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Azerbaijan in October 2023. Team leaders/members of the winning teams will also be invited to be co-authors of the paper.
