Space-enabled business is growing rapidly in Finland. Traditional sectors, such as shipping industry, are transforming with the help of the satellite infrastructure. Newcomers are no longer rocket scientists, but data scientists, who build data driven solutions with deep understanding about customer needs.

Interested? Welcome to hear from Cloud Asset, Terramonitor and Zero Gravity about how they have entered the space business.
You will learn about technologies developed in VTT that are relevant for the autonomous systems and situational awareness. In the event funding opportunities offered by European Space Agency are introduced. The event is organized together with BalticSatApps project and is funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund).

This event also launches the SpaceUp Acceleration Program, where future astropreneurs will be born! Event is part of the Turku Tech Week.
