This conference is organized by the Luxembourg-Poland Chamber of Commerce (LPCC) in cooperation with the Embassy of The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in Poland, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Luxembourg and the Polish-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce (PLIG).


On 12 October 2018, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and the Republic of Poland signed a Memorandum of Understanding to start bilateral cooperation on space activities with particular focus on the exploration and utilization of space resources. The signatories were the Luxembourg Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy, Mr. Étienne Schneider, and the Polish Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology, Mrs. Jadwiga Emilewicz.


The aim of the conference is to review the state of bilateral cooperation and to bring together companies and experts from the space industry, as well as from the finance and public sectors from Luxembourg and Poland in order to discuss issues related to the development of the space technology as a long-term activity, which however has potential of a short-term implementation in the marketplace. It will be a great opportunity for Luxembourg and Polish actors from the space sector to exchange their views and experiences and to find partners for cooperation.
