Message of Chairmen

Wallonie Espace is proud to announce the organization of the fifth edition of their SPACE DAYS to be held in Transinne (Redu), Belgium, on 13-14 October 2014.

Every actor involved in the Space business, whether from agencies, industry, universities, or governmental institutions, is warmly invited to participate in and actively contribute to the not-to-be-missed biennial event for the Space community.

Under the theme ‘Space Value on Earth’, SPACE DAYS 2014 will focus on a very topical issue: “Galileo & Copernicus: Boosting Business and Innovation”.

Both specialists and particularly end-users, who are not necessarily well informed about the benefits of space technologies in their specific field, will get their money’s worth at the SPACE DAYS 2014 event.
