Space technology, infrastructures and digital applications offer many market segments with a high growth rate and many opportunities to take a market leading role. This series of capacity building workshops has been created for VC fund managers interested in finding out more about space investments.
Episode 2 is hosted by DG DEFIS in Brussels on Monday 2 May and focuses on how space applications can contribute to safety and security in Europe. You are welcome to participate on site or online. We will cover space security in orbit, space defence, how to protect critical infrastructures with space assets, and Space Situational Awareness –a new EU programme with more than €400M of funding where European companies will have significant opportunities to expand their businesses.
Each presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, where you can ask questions about e.g. emerging market segments, the major market players, dynamics, public funding, and so on.
