Alongside Professor João Tasso de Figueiredo Borges de Sousa (University of Porto), Professor Elmar Giemulla (TU Berlin), Professor Gerhard Hirzinger (DLR), Professor Friedrich Fraundorfer (University of Graz) und Professor Maryam Kamgarpour (ETH Zurich) speakers from leading industrial companies will give talks on innovations and problems of the aspiring technology. A fireside chat with the former Director of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Professor Gerhard Haerendel, will address the space scientist’s academic career.
This year the international network RLS-Sciences (Regional Leaders Summit), which has been co-ordinating the exchange between Bavaria and Quebec, Upper Austria, Shandong, Georgia, Sao Paulo and Western Cape since 2002, will be represented by 14 scientists from these six regions.
Since formation of the association in 2010, this year’s Summer School is the fifth retreat event organised by Munich Aerospace. Initially a network meeting for the association’s initiators, now also interested industrial representatives participate increasingly in the annual event. After last year’s key topic Space Debris, in 2016 the event series focusses on a specific subject for the second time. If you are interested in attending please register here.
