Conference Space and the Universities of the Future in Europe 4 October

Focus topics

Europe’s role in “New Space”
The development of an entrepreneurial space encompasses a globally emerging private spaceflight industry. In this “New Space” business arena, comprehensive higher education is critically needed to realise new value propositions for innovation, intellectual property, and consequently global business opportunities.

New skills for the future of space
Following the recommendations of the New skills agenda for Europe, promoting work-based learning to match the current and future needs of the labour market is a priority for higher education institutions.

The European Space Policy
EU space activities provide incentives for technologies and for global business opportunities. The new EU space programme deepens investments in satellite navigation, Earth observation, space situational awareness and secure communications with the establishment of the EU Agency for the Space Programme.

European Space Agency: Vision of the Future
After the Financial Framework Partnership Agreement signed by ESA and the EU, the new EU Space Programme reinforces the highly successful flagship programmes and will support new initiatives, notably in the field of secure connectivity, research and development and space commercialisation.
