Mesures de Positionnement


Space Technologies Studies 2016: results

13 February 2018

The Swiss Space Center organised for the fourth time after 2012, 2014 and 2016 an event dedicated to the presentations of results achieved by the consortium selected in the frame of our national activity “Mesures de Positionnement” funded and implemented by the Swiss Space Office from the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI/SSO).


The twelve projects selected in 2016 come to an end in January 2018 and this event is a unique networking opportunity for the Swiss space community, newcomers in the space business and international stakeholders. More than 100 participants attended the past events.
