The Finnish Satellite Workshop brings together space tech specialists, scientists and students to discuss current topics in a rapidly developing space field. This year there were also several companies who are interested in New Space and its many possibilities. The number of participants of this event has grown every year.

Some partners of KvarkenSpaceEco project had sent their participants to this event. Our project was well visible since our members had several posters and presentations at the event, as well as a joint booth at the business exhibition area.

Participants were interested in our project.

At the booth we met old and new contacts and presented our project. Besides our project as such many participants were interested in our project area on both sides of the Kvarken.
