Startups Empowered by Space Technologies at Lift14
Did you know that Switzerland has the co-presidency of the European Space Agency ESA council since 2012?
And that Switzerland has been a significant player in the space arena for the past 50 years?
The co-presidency brings important economic opportunties to the Swiss innovation ecosystem and tech scene. To facilitate the development of applications using space-based technology in domains like telecommunications, navigation and earth observation a special incubator has been created: AP-Swiss.
José Achache, its managing director, will hold a masterclass on "How to develop new space-based applications with the support of the ESA" on Thursday Feb 6th 11:30. Don't miss this opportunity to get more information about space tech-related opportunities first-hand.
Also in the Lift startup lounge you can meet entrepreneurs already successfully positioned in the field:
- The innovative ankle bracelet to electronically monitor prisoners developped by Geosatis Technology
- An application developped by The WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF which uses satellite technology combined with ancillary information to accurately anticipate avalanches for the alert service they develloped
- The non-profit independant Swiss Foundation for Mine Action locating and destroying landmines
