Space Academy Paris

Space Academy in Paris took place on 8-9th March 2021

The two-day event and related business services provided space-specific commercial and technical assistance and helped start-ups to apply space technology to non-space industrial, scientific and commercial fields, and vice-versa. 337 participants (including startups, experts, and investors) from 47 countries joined the Space Academy, with 222 B2B meetings set up.

Hosted by SpaceUp partner IASP, the Space Academy took place on the 8th-9th of March and was embedded into Paris Space Week which was a fully hybrid event, with options to participate in person or online. ​As SpaceUp, we held a panel session at Paris Space Week discussing “From Space to Earth: Investing in Downstream Applications”, which was attended by more than 100 people. Four panellists discussed the potential of space technologies, the funding landscape and what trends they see emerging in the market.
