Redefining is Possible at Conference on New Space Tech
On behalf of the space science and technology community BYspace and its partners, we invite you to take part in an international event dedicated to private astronautics, space infrastructures and education. This event will be the first step for building partnerships in this area and promoting technologies in the interests of space in Belarus toward the world. The event will be held in Minsk (Belarus) as part of the World Space Week (WSWA) on October 5-6 under the auspices of the UN Committee on Peaceful Purpose of Outer Space (COPUOS) with the assistance of the National Space Contact Point of the European Research and Innovation Program Horizon 2020 and a number of organizations that are not indifferent to the development of space both nationally and internationally.
We are confident of the success and popularity of this event in the wake of the growing interest in space technology in general, and thanks to the fact that last year Minsk was the venue for the XXXI Congress of the Association of Space Explorers (ASE). The Executive Committee, which includes cosmonauts and astronauts from around the world, acknowledged the community’s readiness for such events from all sides.This time we are planning to gather 400+ representatives from several private and state companies, start-ups and enthusiasts who are interested in technologies for the use and exploration of space for peaceful purposes.
