EuroSpaceHub Forum will take place in Ibiza, Spain, from 3rd to 5th May! Join us for three days in this special location to experience Space in a unique way at our first EuroSpaceHub Forum.
Why a EuroSpaceHub Forum?
We are incredibly happy to announce our first EuroSpaceHub Forum, which will take place on the beautiful island of Ibiza on the dates of 3-4-5 May 2023. The festival is a EuroSpaceHub initiative, carried out in collaboration with the local government of Ibiza and the Balearic Islands, with support from the European Union’s EIT HEI initiative.
The Forum was created to bring together the EuroSpaceHub community and, more broadly, all Space Lovers, professionals and students, to celebrate Space in an innovative way and to learn together. The objective of this Forum is to create informal and formal conversations between actors and stakeholders in the Space and Aviation innovation ecosystem. We want to increase mutual learning, inspire conversations to trigger unexpected collaborations. We hope this three-day event will be a time of fruitful networking, from which new partnerships between academia, industry, startups and governments will emerge.

We believe in Co-Responsibility
For the three-day event, there will also be a special service for families. Children can have fun and learn with workshops dedicated to them, while parents can enjoy the event thanks to the babysitting service we have organized. The service is for children between 6 and 15 years old and will take place at Fablab Ibiza.
What’s on the agenda for you at the Forum? A wide range of lectures, panels, classes and creative activities, of course! If you are curious about the detailed program, take a look below. Our program includes a wide variety of contributions. Panels will bring together diverse representatives from startups to academics, from industry to government. In addition, there will be interactive moments of exchange, including networking game sessions to find collaborations among participants. There will be no shortage of co-creation moments and active workshops, where every participant will be the protagonist. As a background to all this, the magnificent locations of Ibiza will be the perfect venues for networking lunches, breaks and evening events.
At EuroSpaceHub we think that Space is the perfect juncture between technology and philosophy, between science and culture, between rationality and creativity. Our festival stands up for these values and will provide opportunities for Space artists, musicians and writers to share with the public the inspiration that Space has given to their art. With this Forum you can experience Space firsthand as you never have before. Shall we talk about Space Food? Be prepared, it won’t be missed at the festival!
