Biotechnology Engineer and project manager for Aerospace Projects
Field: Engineering/ Technology; Science
Profile: Pascale Lefebure holds a Master’s degree in bioengineering and an Advanced Master in Aerospace Project Management with the Higher Institute of Aeronautics and Space ISAE Supaero.
She has worked several years for the French Ministry of Defense (Directorate General for International Relations and Strategy- DGRIS) on critical technologies assessment. Fascinated by Space field, as a result of her work for Kayser Italia (leader in payload development for life sciences experimentation in microgravity), Pascale Lefebure participated in the microgravity experiments international network and she contributed to the different stages of the microgravity experiments life cycle. In May 2021, she sent her application to ESA to become an astronaut.
Since 2013, Pascale Lefebure makes regular presentations about industrial applications of news technologies as 3D printing, nanotechnologies or space sciences. She has also authored numerous reports on emerging technologies.
With SIGMA-VISION.COM, Pascale is currently involved in Legends’ Lab, an educational website and sofware to raise public awareness about why, and how, is space research important for tomorrow’s discoveries? Come see all benefits of space researchbfor the entire humankind!. Through the space domain, Legends’ Lab® (www.legends-lab.space) proposes an approach to learn and develop core competencies in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics). Our activities encourage problem solving, creativity, critical analysis, teamwork, initiative and collaboration. We work with primary and secondary schools, as well as other organizations supporting young people worldwide.
Network Activities: I will be very proud to increase visibility of women projects.
I will continue to support Space4Women mentees with an interest in aerospace for their projects.
With local schools or with web-based connection with worldwide schools, I plan to provide outreach to present my career in sciences and talk with youth about career opportunities in Space field.
