ERC 2020 Conference – meeting of world space sector representatives

Similarly to the previous year ERC Space & Robotics Event will be accompanied by business conference. Its quests will be the representatives of the European and global space sector, who will take part in six sessions planned by the organizers. Women in the space sector, technology transfer, and ways of inspiring the next generations to work in space industries — these are just examples of the topics that will be discussed during the conference.

The conference will be held on September 11th  from 10:00 to 19:00 and will be carried out in the hybrid formula. Part of the sessions will be held in the Auditorium of the Kielce University of Technology, and some in the form of a webinar. Everything will be broadcasted live on the ERC Space & Robotics Event website. Admission to the conference is free and the whole event will be conducted in English.
