Objectives: RAST 2017 has the main objective of providing a forum for the presentation and review of developments in space economy, as well as all aspects of recent developments in space technologies. In particular, a focus is desired on a historical and current evaluation of the economic aspects of space technology and how it can further contribute to economic development, with specific emphasis on the developing and less developed World, while at the same time making a serious contribution to the sustainability of the environment and natural resources. Presentations are encouraged from government and international space agencies as well as the private sector.
Participants: As in previous RAST Conferences, RAST 2017 is intended to be a forum for the exchange of recent research results and ideas in space technologies and applications; this time with specific reference to space economy. It should be of interest to a wide range of participants from government agencies, relevant international institutions, universities, research organizations, space companies, as well as media and the general public. The conference should serve as an opportunity for networking and fruitful exchange with fellow participants on topics of mutual interest.
