Message of Chairman
Wallonie Espace is proud to organize the fourth edition of their SPACE DAYS, to be held in Liège, Belgium, on September 26th - 27th 2012. The Wallonie Espace SPACE DAYS are meant as a biennial meeting place for all actors involved in the Space business : agencies, industry, universities, and governmental institutions. The 2012 theme is dedicated to Earth Observation, with emphasis on instrumentation, data processing and applications.
The next coming Space programme orientations in Europe (2012 ESA Ministerial Council, GMES…), new challenges related to climate changes, monitoring and management of natural disasters and Earth resources along with budget constraints require adequate technology solutions to be provided by the Space industry in collaboration with researchers and scientists.
In order to offer a quick and accurate overview of the latest trends in this strategic field of the space market, SPACE DAYS 2012 offers you the opportunity to attend debates bringing together key players and renown experts active in present and future Earth observation programmes. In addition, several workshops will provide up-to-date information about remarkable technologies in line with the 2012 theme. B2B meetings will be held and participants will have the possibility to visit local Space companies.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Space Days 2012 event !
