Live-Keynotes and panel discussions


Space as Solution for More Sustainability

Wednesday, 1.6.2022, 10:05 – 10:50
Expert panel with Dr. Anke Pagels-Kerp, DLR-Bereichsvorständin Raumfahrt

Space is part of the solution for greater sustainability – in space and on Earth. Earth observation data contribute significantly to a better understanding of climate change and other environmental phenomena. With satellite-based industrial applications, sustainable management on Earth can be supported so effectively. At the same time, innovative solutions are needed to avoid space debris and thus enable sustainable use of space. With three exciting keynote presentations, the session will show concrete industrial application examples of how space can contribute to greater sustainability: From the benefits of space hydrogen projects for industry to forest fire monitoring from space and smart solutions to avoid space debris.

Satellite Data for Industry

Wednesday, 1.6.2022, 10:50 – 11:35
Expert panel with Prof. Markus Rapp, Direktor DLR-Institut für Physik der Atmosphäre

Satellites already provide unique data today, and the quantity and quality of this data is improving year by year, not least thanks to cutting-edge technology “Made in Germany”. Never before has it been so easy for industry and also medium-sized companies in Germany to achieve real competitive advantages with the help of satellite data. Whether in the area of fast, secure and ubiquitously available data connectivity for Industry 4.0 applications, or for faster and more effective monitoring of spatially distributed infrastructures, the use cases for so-called downstream services are becoming more diverse and easier to exploit. This session provides an overview of the latest developments.

Space Technology

Wednesday, 1.6.2022, 11:35 – 12:30
Expert panel with Prof. Anke Kaysser-Pyzalla, Vorstandsvorsitzende des DLR

Space is an integral part of our everyday life, especially when it comes to global mobility. It is a technology driver and an economic success factor – it contributes significantly to our prosperity. Satellite-based applications and orbital infrastructure allow us to determine the consequences of climate change and identify its causes. In this respect, space technologies have become a tool for us. Data from space help us to manage our natural resources properly. Human spaceflight also plays its part. Experiments on the International Space Station (ISS) open up new possibilities in terrestrial medicine, materials research and even robotics in healthcare and medicine.
