Challenges and Opportunities of the New Space Economy

The New Space Economy represents one of the most promising development trajectories for the world economy in the coming decades thanks to the availability of new technologies and the evolution of the aerospace value chain towards other industrial sectors. Italy is the fifth-largest country in the world, and second in Europe, in terms of investments made in relation to GDP in the New Space Economy. The centrality of public and private funding programmes linked to the New Space Economy represents a decisive resource for the development of satellite and space technologies and infrastructures.

The Open Programme on Challenges and Opportunities of the New Space Economy is a high-level training programme that aims to support participants in maximising their business impact, supporting their personal and professional growth and offering the tools and skills needed to identify and intercept business opportunities associated with the development of satellite technologies and the use of space.

The Programme provides solid managerial and technical skills, with the aim of enriching professionals capable of leading business organisations through the major challenges of space and satellite technologies.

The course is aimed at a wide audience that includes both participants aspiring to enter the aerospace sector and professionals and managers already working in the sector who want to hone their skills and knowledge in the New Space Economy branch: Aerospace and non space-based companies; Aerospace and New Space Economy consultants; Directors and managers of public bodies.

The course is divided into two thematic modules, for a total of 4 teaching sessions in a weekend formula (Friday and Saturday), to be attended on campus.

Testimonials from leaders, top managers and exponents of the corporate world of aerospace are foreseen, offering a unique and immersive learning experience.
