The dissemination and exploitation of technology achievements is an essential role of the Directorate of Technology, Engineering & Quality and fundamental in maintaining its position as the ESA technology innovation engine.
One of the main objectives of the Directorate is to develop a broad range of advanced technologies up to a sufficient maturity level in order to be used in space missions.
The Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs) is an event oriented to European Industries, Academia and ESA technical experts to present their achievements in developing advanced technologies for space missions. During the SET-FPDs, recently completed technology contracts and the achievements made within the Directorate of Technology, Engineering & Quality and other ESA directorates will be presented.
The SET-FPDs high level goals are to:
- Disseminate the achievements of ESA technology programmes and the results from recently completed R&D technology activities to a diverse and wide audience
- Initiate a discussion among experts on a broad range of technologies in different technical competence domains in order to address the future technological space challenges
- Bring together technology experts from European Industries, Academia and ESA to discuss Space R&D
- Provide a forum for participants to share their views on R&D directions, strategies, technologies and investments.
The SET-FPDs are an opportunity for attendees to increase their professional network and to stay informed of the latest technologies in the different ESA Competence Domains.
