18:30-21:30 “The boomerang effect of the conquest of space!”
We all benefit routinely here on Earth from the application of many technological innovations initially developed for the aerospace industry. The investments made, whether financial or in R&D, have a boomerang effect on our economy, our technological development and our well-being.
In accordance with the universal law that “What goes up must come down”, Newton would certainly have participated in our conference!
Christophe Lasseur, Head of MELiSSA Project Life Support R&D Coordinator de l’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA).
The conference will focus on a variety of accounts and concrete examples of the transfer of technology from aerospace to Earth, followed by a drinks reception to conclude the evening.
