Mari Cecilie Aae (Norway)

Norwegian Space Centre

I am 25 years old and live in Oslo where I work as a trainee at the Norwegian Space Agency. I have studied European Studies for five years which is a cross-sectoral study program focused on the EU, general political science, European history and Spanish as a language. This summer I graduated from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I wrote my Master’s Thesis on Nordic Defense Cooperation, focusing on the dilemma of cyber security. The BA-thesis I submitted in 2016 focused on Norwegian foreign policy and the economic sanctions towards Russia as a response to the annexation of Crimea. As a trainee I am responsible for a project titled “Satellites in support of foreign- and security policy”, focusing on real time information, the maritime sector and hybrid threats. Relevant for this project is to fully understand Norwegian interests in the Arctic region, a region of increasing strategic importance.
