Commercial Space Days

11 - 12 September 2023 Luzern

Commercial Space Days is a two-day conference organised in Luzern by the Centre for Aviation and Space Competence at the University of St Gallen and the Swiss Aerospace Cluster in cooperation with ECSECO and the Swiss Space Office. Over these two days, leading space companies will meet with key academics in economics, innovation management and business to discuss entrepreneurship and lessons learned from the space revolution of the last decade, and to provide inputs for the next era of space commercialisation. The conference highlight will be a panel discussion with leading innovation & space economists Mariana Mazzucato (UCL), Dominique Foray (EPFL), Vivianna Fang He (HSG) and Matthew Weinzierl (HBS). NASA Chief Economist Alexander MacDonald will join as a special guest.
