Future Space

A warm welcome to the Future Space Conference 2024.
Meet our Swedish astronauts and other thought leaders in the Swedish and international space sector. Take the chance to expand your network and understand more around the growing business and academic opportunities connected to space.

The Future Space conference offers a two-day programme, lunch-to-lunch, with speakers tackling topics like earth observation, defence and security for space, and space commercialization and much more. 
On the first conference day, we invite you to participate in a dinner at the Visualiseringscenter in Norrköping which promises to provide a brilliant backdrop for continued discussions around the future of space. 

The Future Space Conference 2024 is hosted by Beyond Gravity, Maxar and Saab. The three companies are offering facility tours in the afternoon of the second conference day. A bespoke opportunity not to miss!

You can also join a tour of Linköping before the start of the conference to familiarize yourself with and access this vibrant community. 

Join us in Linköping!
