In volatile times, visions are crucial. They enable us to build a better future, they’re a call to action and they drive us to set out to new frontiers. Exploring space is such a vision and Munich is a veritable European innovation ecosystem in this area. We heard from four players in this unique ecosystem – a start-up, an established business leader, a leading technology enabler and a top university – about what it takes to bring the vision of space exploration to a new level.

This session was moderated by DLD Founder Steffi Czerny.
