Arctic Circle, Finland – NOVEMBER 13.–15.2018


Thank you to everyone who attended the first Scale the Space Conference on 13th-15th November 2018.


A conference for researchers, entrepreneurs, developers and funders in space technology
across Europe and the world.

NewSpace – Intelligent traffic – Geodata visualization


Thank you for attending our event on the 13th-15th November 2018 and contributing to its success.

We believe the perspectives offered by our guest speakers and the subsequent discussion amply highlighted the importance of growing multidisciplinary cooperation for future success in the NewSpace sector as well as developing Intelligent Traffic and Geodata visualisation over the industry boundaries. Clearly there is work to be done in formulating successful strategies and executing them in partnership with the several research institutions, industry and businesses. This is an ongoing process and we were happy to facilitate this important forum.
To sum up, Scale the Space Conference hit the goal by succeeding to create real cooperation ideas for forward processing. 

Special thanks to below chairs and speakers!
