Technical Workshop - Space technology and sustainability: a challenge for the future

The space economy is a fast-growing sector at global scale. In particular, it is becoming a leading business and research sector in Europe. It is more and more important to develop new ideas and opportunities, leveraging on the strong competence of universities and research centers together with the solid support by space industries and the growing constellation of SME and start-up companies.

On the Italian Day of Space, eSpace - EPFL Space center, together with Embassy of Italy in Bern and the General Consulate of Italy in Geneva, are organizing this technical workshop to promote a network of collaboration between Italy and Switzerland, involving Academia and space industries, large companies and SME.

Starting from the presentation of new technologies, developed in Switzerland with a significant participation of Italian researchers, we present examples of how space can present opportunities for both for young engineers and scientists, and for companies.  As it becomes more and more crowded, the responsible use of space key, as will be discussed during a round table.

Researchers, engineers, space companies, start-up, students and any interested person are invited to join this free technical networking event.
