The Ministry of the Economy, in collaboration with Luxinnovation, is pleased to invite you to participate in a visit of the renowned Von Karman Institute.
The Ministry wishes to strengthen scientific and industrial collaboration with the institute, particularly for the economic development of the space and industry sectors in Luxembourg. The institute, for its part, is seeking new scientific partnerships with the Grand Duchy’s public research community as well as new potential industrial clients.
The team of Mr Jean-Jacques Dordain (Ex-President of the European Space Agency and Member of the Advisory Board of the Space Mining initiative) will receive us and present the research activities and their training programmes. Visits of the laboratories will also be possible (see https://www.vki.ac.be).
The Von Karman Institute specialises in research and development in fluid dynamics and brings its know-how to the space and industrial sectors in particular. It provides, for example, the coordination of the FP7 project on nanosatellites called qb50 (see https://www.qb50.eu/)
