The Lunar Exploration Renaissance

February 11, 2019

 


Space Applications Services, with the support of the European Commission Research Executive Agency, is organising the conference: "The Lunar Exploration Renaissance".


The full-day Conference will take place in the premises of the European Commission in Brussels,
from 09:30 to 18:30 on Wednesday, 13th February 2019 at:
Research Executive Agency (REA)
Covent Garden
Place Rogier 16, 1049 Brussels, Belgium

 

Considering the recent developments, placing the focus the sustainable exploration of the Moon, the Conference will provide a unique opportunity to link and engage scientists, industry experts and decision-makers in a discussion on the opportunities and challenges for lunar science, technology for exploration and lunar payload accommodation prospects.
The event will include a live demonstration of the robotic platform LUVMI – a lightweight rover designed to provide mobility to scientific payloads and explore Lunar resources. The LUVMI Project is implemented by a consortium of European entities with the financial assistance of Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Commission.
