The next Finland Industry Day is coming soon
The ESA Φ-lab and InCubed programme will be presented at the Finland Industry Day which takes place during the country’s Space Business Forum on Wednesday 17 February 2021.
Finnish companies interested in developing the Finnish space based value chain from satellites, systems, sub-systems to ground segments and the utilisation of space applications are invited to an Industry Day which will take place virtually on Wednesday 17 February 2021, 12:00-14:30 CET / 13:00-15:30 EET.
Kimmo Kanto, Head of Space at Business Finland, will open the Industry Day with an overview of Finnish space strategy followed by presentations from ESA representatives. Giuseppe Borghi, Head of ESA’s Φ-lab, will focus on how Φ-lab activities can support the use of Earth Observation for the Finnish commercial sector.
Amanda Regan, Head of ESA’s Φ-lab Invest Office, will give an overview of the Investing in Industrial Innovation (InCubed) programme and outline the application process for Finnish companies. Presentations on the InCubed and Φ-lab experience will follow from CEO of Swedish company Unibap Fredrik Bruhn, CEO of Reaktor Space Tuomas Tikka, and ICEYE Senior SAR Engineer Andrea Radius.
Jaan Praks, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Aalto University, will open the second half of the Industry Day with perspectives on Finnish space economy challenges. A company round table and open discussion will follow so that ESA can better understand and support the needs and challenges of the Finnish space ecosystem. To conclude we aim to have a discussion focused on the development of the Earth observation commercial sector and how Finland could play an important role in this emerging landscape.
