Madrid, Spain | June 24th and 25th 2022
Instituto de Ingeniería de España
ince the first fully spanish satellite, MiniSat, was launched in 1997, the space sector in Spain has advanced immensely. From key organizations and enterprises to a growing number of startups, the Spanish position in the global space ecosystem is more relevant than ever. Recent developments such as the creation of the Spanish Space Agency and the increase in contribution to the budget of the European Space Agency are indicators of the recognition of the importance of space technology and activities by Spanish authorities.
In this context, having a young generation that takes these advancements further in the future is crucial for the long term development of Spanish presence as a key player in space.
