The first INNOspace Weekend will be held this year and will be take place from 15-17 September 2017 in Cologne. Organised by Design & Data GmbH on behalf of DLR, the aim is to unite non-space sectors to the space sector and generate new upstream or downstream space startups.
As part of our service offering, we produce a full range of content across all forms of media, catering for the space industry. Over recent months we have supported a number of livestreams for ESA that allow the public to watch space events in real-time.
The next flight to the Red Planet will depart at 09:31 GMT (10:31 CET) on 14 March from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. Representatives of the media are invited by ESA to follow the event live from ESA’s Operations Centre (ESOC) in Darmstadt, Germany. Can’t make it in person? Design & Data will be supporting ESA with the livestream.
It is already a reality in North America. As part of the NewSpace movement, many young startup companies bring innovative ideas to the space sector and with those innovative ideas come advancements in this interesting and promising sector. “This topic has not reached Europe yet.”, says Sebastian D. Marcu. But the CEO of Cologne-based, Design & Data, is sure that “within the next months and years something great will happen here”. The movement has started successfully with the first StartupWeekend Space in Bremen for which the communications expert acted as co-lead.
