About The Event
Welcome to the Commercial Space Days 2023, taking place 11-12 September in the KKL Congress Center of Luzern, Europe’s No.1 NewSpace event dedicated to the advancement of commercialization, sustainability and policy in the space industry.
This year, the Center for Aviation and Space Competence (University of St. Gallen) and Swiss Aerospace Cluster, together with ESA’s European Center for Space Economy and Commerce and Space Exchange Switzerland, are bringing together thought leaders, industry experts, entrepreneurs, and policymakers from Switzerland, Europe and around the world to address the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in the NewSpace domain. Our focus is on growth, innovation, and societal impact in the Aerospace sector and discussing what really matters in NewSpace economy and commerce.
The first day will feature keynote speeches from renowned industry leaders who will share their insights on the current state of the NewSpace market and its potential for commercialization and sustainability. We will also have inputs on topics such as technology acceleration, incubation and market dynamics, where experts will exchange ideas and debate the most pressing issues facing the space industry today.
On the second day, we will showcase some of the most innovative and sustainable technologies and projects in the NewSpace domain (ESA and other programs) through a series of presentations and demos. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about new advancements in areas such as propulsion, constellations, and the post-ISS era, as well as how they can be applied to meet the growing demand for commercial and sustainable space activities.
An exhibition, science and student fair will complement the congress set-up, which is also supported by the Matchmaking Platform b2match, freely accessibly before and after the congress to all participants, exhibitors and speakers and extending the reach of the networking opportunities with 400 attendees from more than 200 organizations. Make your most relevant connections for 2023 during the Commercial Space Days!
Throughout the event, we will also explore the role of policy and regulation in fostering a sustainable and commercially viable NewSpace industry. Experts will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with international collaboration, public-private partnerships, and the impact of space activities on the environment and society.
Join us at the Commercial Space Days 2023 in Luzern to be a part of this exciting conversation on how space economy, commercialization and sustainability can transform the NewSpace industry and shape the future of space exploration and development.
We are thrilled to announce that the CSD2023 will feature a diverse range of speakers, including:
- Alexander MacDonald, Chief Economist at NASA, who will discuss the economic opportunities and challenges of space exploration and commercialization, as well as the potential impact of NewSpace on global industries and economies, also presenting US’ NewSpace revolution of the last two decades.
- Mariana Mazzucato, Professor of Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London, who will share her insights on the role of public policy and investment in fostering a sustainable and equitable NewSpace industry, as well as the potential benefits for society.
- Dan Rasky, Director of the Space Portal at NASA Ames Research Center, who will highlight the latest innovations and technologies being developed at NASA and other research institutions to advance space exploration and enable sustainable commercial activities in space. Dan will also present a unique version of the SpaceX story as part of a Multi Media Show in the Luzern Planetarium on the first evening.
Also excited to announce that Matthew Weinzierl, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, will also be joining us as a speaker during the Great Debate panel for Innovation Economy in Space. Professor Weinzierl is a leading expert on the economics and management of innovation, and has conducted extensive research on the commercialization of emerging technologies, including those in the space industry. He will share his insights on the challenges and opportunities of financing and scaling sustainable space ventures, as well as the potential impact of NewSpace on the broader economy and society.
Speakers from ESA (Luca del Monte) and ECSECO Board Members (Stela Tkatchova, Juan Tomas Hernani, Vito Albino) and many more will bring their expertise and unique perspectives to Luzern, creating an engaging and informative event that will benefit anyone interested in the future of the NewSpace industry.
