Space Community Days Switzerland 2023

Challenges and opportunities in the space field. Practical and useful information for space industries and newcomers in the domain.

! This event is dedicated to Swiss organisations with invited international speakers !

The event will be held at BernExpo on April 25-26 and will offer:

  1. Presentations over 2 days: the agenda might be subject to minor changes.
  2. Physical Face-2-Face meeting sessions 

The Space Community Days 2023 offer a platform to exchange experiences and to support cooperation. This is a great opportunity to listen to prominent speakers involving ESA program managers, representatives of Swiss companies and of the Large European System Integrators. 

The event is intended to be an occasion to meet again after the pandemic, and to learn about future opportunities in select ESA programmes. The community days will also be the occasion to improve the dialogue between space science and industry through dedicated sessions. The event focuses on specific and select tangible opportunities for Swiss entities, namely for SME’s. 

In the afternoon of the first Day, we have the pleasure to welcome Prof. Masaki Fujimoto, Deputy Director General at JAXA for a keynote presentation on Hayabusa2. This will open a session fostering the "dialogue between space science and space industries" organised together with ISSI Bern and the NCCR PlanetS. 

To encourage further networking and extend the discussions we are pleased to invite you to a Gala Dinner on Tuesday evening at the Kornhauskeller in Bern - Don't miss this exclusive moment of conviviality!

The second day is dedicated to the presentation of new ESA e-tools and national support initiatives. A session on AI for space will be organised in the afternoon.
