Engineer's Day 2024

In the frantic race for planetary exploration, leading spacefaring nations are competing with American initiatives such as NASA, SpaceX and Blue Origin. At the same time, a booming economy is developing around new technologies, nanosatellites, microlight launchers and data from
constellations of Earth-orbiting satellites, forming what is known as the "New Space", a particularly dynamic research and innovation sector that is largely unknown to the general public.

During conferences and discussions led by renowned experts, you'll meet the new players in space exploration, researchers, entrepreneurs and trainers, all of whom are passionate about the development of New Space in the Occitanie region.

From CNES (the French space agency) and the training provided at Montpellier's Centre Spatial Universitaire to the brilliant initiatives of startups encouraged by the network of incubators supported by the European Space Agency, the BIC ESA, you'll discover how these companies are preparing for the new challenges and opportunities in the fast-growing space economy.
