INNOspace Masters “Space Moves!”

Conference and Awards Ceremony on 3 July 2019 at Humboldt Carré, Berlin

We would like to thank all guests and participants of the INNOspace Masters Conference and Award Ceremony for their attendance and contribution.

Under the theme “Space Moves!”, the Space Administration at the German Aerospace Center (DLR), within the fourth INNOspace Masters competition, once again embarked on a search for new ideas and concepts designed to address the aerospace industry’s current problems and offer innovative potential solutions. A total of 253 participants from companies, start-ups, universities and research institutions in 17 European countries submitted their project outlines and twelve were selected for the final round of the innovation competition. The winners of the competition have now been chosen, with the overall winner being ESDA-Axiotherm GmbH with an innovative polymer compound. Here you find more details on this years winner:

The prizes were presented by Dr Walther Pelzer, Chairman of DLR Space Administration, and by the competition partners at the fourth INNOspace Masters Conference. Thomas Jarzombek MdB, Federal Government Coordinator of German Aerospace Policy, opened the conference with Dr Walther Pelzer. The INNOspace Masters “SpaceMoves!” conference featured current trends in the space sector – including the impact of artificial intelligence and Industry 4.0 on the future of aerospace and prospects for the transfer of aerospace technologies to other industry sectors. Dr Alexander Gerst, ESA astronaut and temporary commander of the ISS, gave a keynote on his mission. In addition to the presentations of ideas by the finalists, two panel discussions brought together high-ranking experts to discuss future challenges and opportunities in the space sector, particularly with regard to artificial intelligence.
