The European Space Week 2017 is 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 event will take place in Tallinn – Estonia – from 3 to 9 November 2017.
The European Space Week will foster 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 is to bring together the most important European space stakeholders, companies, partners and visionaries pushing the topic of space in Europe and beyond.
Fostering a digital Europe and the movement of free data as outlined as one of the four priorities of the Estonia’s Presidency of the EU is key to the 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.
The European Space Week 2017 is conceived to be a constellation of events ranging from a hackathon, accelerator boot camps, a festive Awards Ceremony, conferences, a Horizon 2020 Space Info Day, a ministerial meeting, to the opening of ESA BIC to an exhibition. The week will address different space-related topics that will interest different audiences from policy makers to startups, the public and authorities to industry players. The knowledge exchange will take place through debates, award ceremonies, workshops, symposia and exhibitions in nine different locations.
Planetek will join the Copernicus Training and Information team for this session in Estonia.
