g-nous supported the conceptualisation and organisation of the ESA’s Downstream Gateway Digital Workshop "In-Orbit Economy: From Space Innovation to Business Development".
The focus of the event has been laid on how the space environment can boost commercial solutions through the involvement of private actors in experimenting aboard of European facilities (e.g., ISS internal and external platforms, Space Rider facility) and on current European in-orbit services missions, nurturing new technologies that could accelerate commercial solutions as well as future ESA’s missions to the Moon and Mars while enhancing our everyday life.
