European Space Week – 2018
The European Space Week brings together business and public sector with users and developers of systems using space technology and satellite services. After Brussels, London, Munich, Prague and The Hague, Marseille will be the host for the event in 2018, this time beginning of December (3-6). The ristration form is available at the following link.
Kicking off with the 2nd European GNSS User Consultation Platform and the 5th European Space Solutions Conference, presenting the latest space-powered answers to today’s business challenges, European Space Week 2018 will examine how Europe is using space to tackle challenges in such diverse areas as sustainable development, mobility, defence, economic development and the environment.
At the European Space Week plenary session, participants will learn more about the state of the art of Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus, with input from keynote speakers and high-level officials, including Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs Elżbieta Bieńkowska, GSA Executive Director Carlo des Dorides, French Space Agency (CNES) President Jean-Yves Le Gall and many more.
Parallel sessions dedicated to Smart Cities, Sustainable Land Management, Interconnectivity, Marine and Maritime, Infrastructure Management, Security and Defence will examine how European businesses, entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized companies can harness the power of space technology to build the innovative applications and services needed in these areas.
Digitalisation and space help to connect continents: The European Space Week 2018 will host presentations on EGNSS applications, challenges and solutions related to South East Asia and its markets.
BELS+ will participate to the European Space Week possibly with a booth in the main exhibition area (we will update the page with our booth number when it will be available). Our team will present the first BELS+ Call for Expression of Interest to participate in the GNSS Demo Centre at the NAVIS in Hanoi, Vietnam.
European Asian Space Solution – 2019
One year later in 2019, an offshoot of the European Space Week will be hosted in South East Asia in partnership with a local GNSS event in South East Asia. This new “European Asian Space Solution (EASS)” will give opportunities to European companies to demonstrate their EGNSS applications and solutions on the South East Asian markets. Exhibitions and networking events will facilitate first contacts and market access. More information will be available end of 2018.
