ARTES Future Preparation Final Presentation Days 2016 (ARTES 1)

The ARTES Future Preparation Final Presentation Days for 2016 will take place at ESA/ESTEC - Noordwijk, The Netherlands on the 13th and 14th of January 2016.

ESA hosts this annual session to disseminate the results of Future Preparation activities to interested parties from within the ESA member states.

ARTES Future Preparation represents the strategy element of ESA's Satellite Telecommunications programme and focuses on: defining market opportunities; regulatory barriers; standards; future frequency spectrum needs; as well as economic and business issues related to the development of future satellite telecommunications concepts and technologies.

The Final Presentation Days represent a unique opportunity to gain a complete overview of recently completed Future Preparation activities, and discuss them with colleagues from ESA and across the satellite telecommunications sector. Given the broad range of activity covered by Future Preparation, presentations will be made at a level to be accessible to participants from across the sector.

For more information, please contact the event coordinator: Bojana Jokanovic

If you wish to book a hotel room and benefit from the special ESA negotiated rates, please contact the ESTEC Travel Office.
