Back from our summer break, we would like to take you high up in September – into space with its infinite expanses.
As you may have guessed, our September issue is all about space technology.
Our speakers will show you what potential this technology has and in which areas it will influence our lives.
As keynote speakers we are pleased to welcome Dr. Frank Zimmermann, Managing Director of cesah, and Matthew Edwards, Business Incubation Officer at the European Space Agency (ESA).
Both will tell us what impact Space Technology will have on our society and economy in the future and how start-ups are already developing solutions based on this technology and for which cause.
In addition to our keynote, we have pitches for you again. Look forward to the Darmstadt based start-ups HOSTmi and Deep Blue Globe.
We are already looking forward to seeing you again on September 1st at BtT online!
