IAF Global Networking Forum

In creating the GNF, which takes place at the International Astronautical Congress every year, the IAF created a forum that is global, comprehensive and appealing to a wide range of space actors. The GNF provides networking opportunities for students and young professionals, academics, decision & policy makers, the general public and all who contribute to the sharing of knowledge in the global space community.
The GNF’s motto is ‘Meet. Share. Connect’.

IAF Global Networking Forum. Meet. Share. Connect.

In line with the IAF motto “Connecting @ll Space People” and its mission of promoting partnerships in the space community, advancing international development, sharing knowledge and preparing the workforce of tomorrow, the Federation felt the need to create a global, comprehensive and appealing platform, targeting young professionals, students, experts, decision and policy makers and all actors that could contribute to the networking spirit of such platform.

Hence, the Federation developed the concept of the IAF Global Networking Forum (GNF) and was proud to introduce it during the IAC 2012 in Naples. Given the IAF’s diverse stakeholder portfolio, the activities of the Federation are tailored according to their respective needs. Not only at the IAC, but also during the IAF Spring Meetings and other partner events, the GNF format is successfully used to promote cooperation in the space community.

Help us foster the interaction and the discussion with small & medium-sized enterprises, R&D institutions, universities and larger organisations through the IAF Global Networking Forum.

We are waiting for your ideas!
