In the frame of his Vice-Presidency for Global Networking Forum at the IAF, Andreas Lindenthal’s role is to share his experience and give the best advice to select the best proposals and provide a high-quality GNF programme for the whole community. The IAF GNF’s activities will be tailored to the needs of stakeholders and will provide all IAF members with exclusive and flexible opportunities to actively participate and showcase their latest developments.

In addition, in October 2020, Andreas Lindenthal decided to launch a new initiative called the IAF GNF Space Conversations Series: regularly arranged, free-of-charge registration live online webinars. Throughout these bi-weekly live conversations, the IAF aimed at strengthening even further the ties with its Members and will flag topics that are relevant for the overall space community. These conversations provided a chance for the global space community to come together, connect, be inspired, and informed by leaders and experts in multiple fields of space.
