2018/19 RFP


The Foundation Society has announced its intention to construct a Phase 1 research facility on Europa. You are invited to submit your proposals for this new facility by 23:59 on Dec 15, 2018.

The research facility will provide accommodation for 200 individuals.  Whilst housing will be composed of group accommodation, it should nevertheless be aesthetically pleasing in design. The main focus of the completed facility will be to drill through the surface and into the sub-surface ocean. The base will also set the stage for the larger settlement and will have the infrastructure essential for this future settlement.

It will be important that the inhabitants have the ability to work both inside and outside the facility.

A space ship will be in orbit to provide support.

Proposals must include:

  • An explanation of how the settlement will be constructed with a detailed method and sequence of construction.
  • An overall plan for the research facility.


Please include a team name and an image of all team members within the body of the video. Video must not exceed three minutes duration.
