CenSec – the Danish Cluster for Defence, Space & Security – invites all parties, who are interested in space, to the conference of the year: CenSec Space Conference 8 December 2021. The overall focus and objective of this year’s conference is to explore what is happening on the market right now, and the current business opportunities within the space industry.

Furthermore, the conference will address the most important possibilities for SMEs, but also for bigger players, within the industry. The Space Conference brings together leading experts within the field, who will present current trends and technologies, and give unique insights into relevant space-related topics.
