Swiss Space Industry Days

Welcome to

Swiss Space Industry Days 2017


Challenges and Opportunities in the era of New Space

The upcoming Swiss Space Industry Days are organized by the Swiss Space Office on Thursday and Friday, June 15th and 16th 2017 at the Swiss Tech Convention Center on the EPFL campus in Lausanne.

The aim of these Space Industry Days is to provide up-to-date information to current and potential stakeholders on the various European institutional programs as well as a platform to exchange experiences on the fast changing space landscape having an impact on business and cooperation models, industrial processes, standards and technologies.

What makes the event unique

The programme foresees panels and presentations including those of institutional actors, such as ESA and the European Commission, Large System Integrators (Airbus Defense and Space, Thales Alenia Space and OHB) as well as smaller companies, active in new product niches and emerging space markets.

As a special guest, we are happy to announce Robert Boehme, CEO of PTScientists who will present the "Mission to the Moon". 

Berlin-based new-space company PTScientists are taking you on a mission to the Moon. Working with technology partner Audi, they aim to drive a pair of Audi lunar quattro rovers on the surface of the Moon, and re-visit the last place that humans set foot on the lunar surface during the Apollo 17 mission 45 years ago.

Your opportunity to extend your footprint

The Space Industry Days will also provide ample opportunity for separate business-to-business meetings: you will have the possibility to present your company and discuss with potential partners and customers, based on common interests. The dedicated b2b platform will support you in the planning of your attendance and will allow you to maximize the impact of your attendance.
