The 2017 Satellite Masters Conference & Horizon 2020 Space Info Day featured:
The Satellite Masters Conference was part of the European Space Week 2017 which was organised by the European Commission under the auspices of the Estonian presidency of the Council of the EU and co-organised by the European Space Agency, AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen and Garage48. The European Space Week took place in Tallinn – Estonia – from 3 to 9 November 2017.
The space week has fostered interactions between the space and digital community and will provide visibility to the rapidly changing space sector, its applications and the European Union’s Space Programmes Copernicus and Galileo. Central aim was to bring together the most important space stakeholders, companies, partners and visionaries in Europe pushing the topic of space in Europe and beyond.
Fostering a digital Europe and the movement of free data as outlines as one of the four priorities of Estonia’s presidency is key to our future economic success in Europe. This perfectly links to the implementation of the EU Space Strategy and the myriad ways Europe’s space programmes help to tackle global challenges down on Earth and benefit the citizens of Europe. Global entrepreneurs are visioning many new opportunities in space but also on Earth. These are just a few reasons why the European Space Week was THE event in 2017: this space week has fostered interactions between the space and digital community and provided visibility to the rapidly changing space sector, its applications and the European Union’s Space Programmes Copernicus and Galileo. The central aim was to bring together the most important space stakeholders, companies, partners and visionaries in Europe pushing the topic of space in Europe and beyond.
