The European Space Agency is organising the first ever “Space2connect” conference, which will take place in a virtual format.

“Space2connect” is the right event to explore and discuss the emerging space-based solutions to address the challenges and opportunities of today’s and tomorrow’s digital economy.

Giving an outline across the whole satcom upstream and downstream value chain business, it aims to foster partnerships and inspire new strategies.

The conference will consist of both plenary and parallel sessions, with plenty of networking opportunities and social events.

The opening will be held in the Louwman Museum, with a plenary sessions where manufacturers, satellite operators, space agencies, small companies, entrepreneurs, technical experts and investors will be encouraged to quiz executive level guests who will deliver key note speeches.

In the following days, held at ESTEC, the technological heart of ESA in Noordwijk, we will continue with the ESA Satcom Final Presentation Days (FPDs) and the Business Applications and Space Solutions Day to exchange ideas, share plans, develop relationships and seek inspiration to thrive in the new space age. You will be able to choose from a wide range of parallel sessions showing the latest developments in advanced technology, products and services for satellite communications, discussing the role of space in rail and maritime transport, exploring how space-enabled 5G connectivity is transforming society and…much more!

To enable even more synergies, “Space2connect” will take place at the same time and in the same place as the annual SatNEx and CEMS meetings, which brings academic researchers to ESTEC.
