EU Space Week 2022 starts in Prague

The EU Space Week 2022  is set to put the spotlight on Europe’s dynamic – and rapidly growing – space sector. Taking place 3 – 6 October 2022 in Prague, the heart of the EU Space Programme, and online (as a hybrid event, with options to join either online or physically), EU Space Week 2022 is jointly organised by the European Commission and EUSPA and is being held under the auspices of the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU and the City of Prague.

Expected to bring together over 1,500 representatives from across the European space industry, EUSW22 features a packed agenda that spans the entire spectrum of the EU Space Programme. The four-day event kicks off on 3 October with the annual User Consultation Platform (UCP). The UCP is an opportunity for business and industry leaders, entrepreneurs, service providers, innovators and space user communities to express their needs, share best practices and present case studies. 

Leveraging the central role users play in shaping space applications, the outcomes of this year’s UCP will help ensure that EU Space works for everyone.

The second day also features insights and lively discussions on such topics as strengthening the EU Space Programme through increased cooperation and how EU space is enabling secure communications. 

As Space is a strategic domain that is undergoing a massive transformation, thus panel discussion such as  ‘Space for EU Resilience and Autonomy’ with several entrepreneurs is to listen . It will be the opportunity to discuss how to stay at the forefront of this transformation and how the EU needs to consolidate existing assets while also developing to face upcoming challenges.

The EUSW22 agenda includes an array of sessions, plenaries, events and demonstrations covering everything from current and future trends to market forecasts, business opportunities, space-application demonstrations and updates on the EGNOS, Galileo, Copernicus and GOVSATCOM programmes. 

Galileo and EGNOS enable the determination of a precise position anywhere, while Copernicus provides information on the Earth’s surface, atmosphere and oceans. When you put these programmes together, you unleash an array of synergies that not only have a significant commercial potential, but can also have a powerful impact on society and the planet. The status session and the EU Space Programme Conclusionary session on 5 October will give you an update of its capabilities.

Also happening on 5 October are several sessions focused on investment and funding opportunities such as the CASSINI facility and the Horizon Europe programme. Both the CASSINI and Horizon sessions are a chance for participants to learn more about these important initiatives and receive practical advice from previously funded projects. EUSW22 also features a CASSINI Matchmaking event and a session dedicated to upcoming Horizon Europe opportunities.
