16:30 – 18:00, Popov Room

Space technologies and their applications are part of our everyday life. They vary from using mobile phones, watching live TV broadcasting, making banking transactions, weather forecasting, plain landing suing air traffic control systems, etc. Even though space activities are taking place already for more than half a century, there is no unified definition of what the space sector is, let alone space security. Today’s information economy, increases the information use for all activities and industry.

This panel will discuss the transformation of today’s economy to an information economy and the role of the space economy in this transformation. The opportunities and challenges will be addressed by experts from industry, academia, politics and agencies.
