Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days at ESTEC
SAVE THE DATE: Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs) at ESTEC in July 2019
The next edition of the Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentations Days (SET-FPDs) organised by ESA's Directorate of Technology, Engineering & Quality will take place as a three-day event at ESTEC on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of July 2019 (Tuesday to Thursday).
Each of the three-days will focus on a dedicated technology domain, highlighting technology developments in final presentations and ESA roadmaps, and offering networking opportunities.
Stay tuned for more information about the event in the coming weeks.
Background of the Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs)
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 will be an opportunity for attendees to keep abreast of the latest technologies developed and applied within the different ESA technology programme, while increasing their professional network.
