Space science is a unique tool for development because of its links to research, education, cutting-edge technology and cultural heritage in societies across the world. The challenge is bridging the communication silos that can exist between research, industry, academia and culture, to provide a structure that is effective in bringing the space ecosystem together to share knowledge and practice, collaborate for common endeavours and support the skills for the next generation of space professionals.

During these panel sessions we bring the potential for a new “Space KIC” (Knowledge and Innovation Community) as an example of a structure that supports sharing of knowledge, expertise and opportunities. KICs are pan-European partnerships created under the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) that bring together industry, policy, research and education to harness research and entrepreneurship to address societal challenges, create quality jobs and grow the sector.
