The Polish Space Strategy, space technologies in the service of security and cooperation with foreign entities are the main topics of the fourth edition of the Space Sector Forum. The event will bring together Polish space-related entrepreneurs, representatives of the government and administration, as well as guests from the European Space Agency and leading European companies. The most important economic event on the space map of Poland will take place on June 4 in Warsaw.

 

Recent years have been a time of intensive development for the Polish space sector. Raising the membership fee to the European Space Agency, the announcement of participation of a Pole in a flight to the International Space Station and the decision to create a Polish satellite constellation are just examples of the events from recent months. Participants of the most important space conference in Poland – the Space Sector Forum – will discuss key achievements, but above all opportunities and challenges facing the Polish space sector.

During the Forum three panel discussions will be held, regarding the topics of Polish Space Strategy and the National Space Program, opportunities for cooperation between Poland and European entities, and Space Security.

Polish space sector has been steadily developing for decades, but recently we have seen that changes in its image are occurring much faster. Therefore, during this year’s edition of the Space Sector Forum, we want to invite participants to talk about the condition of our sector, how to wisely take advantage of the opportunities that open up to us in connection with participation in ESA programs, but also what challenges, for example in the area of security, we will face in the coming years, points out Paweł Wojtkiewicz, President of the Board of the Polish Space Industry Association.

Space Sector Forum will take place on June 4 at Expo XXI in Prądzyńskego Street in Warsaw, returning to the stationary formula after the 2021 online edition. This is the fourth edition of the event organized by the Polish Space Industry Association since 2016. Each time the Forum is attended by about 400 participants: representatives of companies, research centers, government and administration. The event consists of a conference part, providing a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience of the space sector, and an exhibition part, where Polish companies can present their latest technologies and projects. Participants will also be able to take advantage of workshops aimed at companies and institutions operating in the space sector. A detailed program for the event is being developed and will be announced soon.
