Israel-Italy Chamber of Commerce & Industry

The Israel Italy Chamber of Commerce and Industry was founded in 1955 as a non profit association. In 1993 it received formal recognition from the Italian Government. The Chamber is part of a world wide network formed by 76 bi-national Italian Chambers of Commerce with access to full collaboration with all the local Chambers of Commerce present in Italy.
Through its networks and thanks to its dynamic, and through the professional of its highly specialized staff, the Chamber provides its members with added value services and information.

Event Details

The new frontier of space is passing through the use of space structures, satellites, space stations and in the near future also planetary outposts, for the realization of industrial applications and productions. Space will not only be connected to explorations and observations of the universe; satellites will not only be used for communications and Earth observation, but the orbiting structures will become real factories for industrial production. The conditions of microgravity, the absence of atmosphere, the unlimited availability of solar energy, are among the unique conditions that make extraterrestrial space the frontier of the new gold rush.

The webinar "Space factories. Emerging applications on space stations" will examine the state of the art of this new trend in the framework of the joint binational space activities of Italy and Israel, which have a long and fruitful history of collaboration, mainly through agreements between the two respective space agencies, ASI and ISA. The online event will be an opportunity to review the latest joint project, DIDO-3, which implemented four experiments on a microsatellite, and to look at the future prospects in industrial applications. Another key issue, linked to the development of suitable conditions for long interplanetary missions, will be the production of food as one of the main fields of experimentation for industrial applications in space.Space Agencies, scientists, space industries, and start-ups from Italy and Israel will take part and contribute to the meeting.
