Event description
This webinar aims at introducing the key question that will be studied during the SG[France]2021 event next month in workshop sessions.

About this event

Last year, the 20th anniversary of the greatest international project of all time – the International Space Station (ISS) – was celebrated! Twenty years of ongoing human presence in space, of scientific research in a unique microgravity environment and twenty years of acquired experience to deal with future human space explorations… But after all of this, what is next?

The future of the ISS is pending on its investors. Until now, and likely until the mid 2020s, space agencies and mostly NASA, were its contributors. But, due to their new ambitions, and with private businesses starting making their way in the station, things will change.

This webinar aims at introducing the key question that will be studied during the SG[France]2021 event next month in workshop sessions: how to diversify the ISS activities to create opportunities for non-space sectors from 2025-2030? To find elements of answers for this wide question, the various domains that will be considered during the SG[France]2021’s workshop are physical science and technology, life science and biology, space accessibility and space art and culture.

For this webinar, the participants will attend 3 speeches which are:

The ISS and its environment, and space accessibility for businesses and industries - by Jason Aspiotis, Business Development Manager at Axiom Space;

The ISS as a lab for Life Science Research - by Lucie Campagnolo, Space and Life Sciences Expert at MEDES.

Art and space, an old relation - by Annick Bureaud, Director of Leonardo/OLATS, Member of ITACCUS & Independent art critic, curator and event organiser in the domain of art and technosciences;

The participants will then be able to ask their questions to the experts, followed by an interactive activity in teams on the theme of the Future of the International Space Station!

This webinar is part of a series preparing the upcoming SG[France]2021 event, and will allow event’s participants and other participants to start thinking about the different topics and challenges that will be tackled during the day.
