SESSION 3: TECHNOLOGY AND SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
Thursday 25 April
Given the nascent stage of developing countries in the field of space science and technology, technology and skills development become important success factors for the long-term sustainability of national space programs. Hence, the consideration of different approaches to such development and the protection of intellectual property is vitally important during the implementation phase of national space programs. The Session focus will be on:
- Grasping the role played by academia in developing the requisite knowledge and skills required for national space programs, and
- Contextualising the role of government in supporting the implementation of national space programs.
- Understanding the cooperation modalities among the key players involved in skills and technology development.
