Expo 2020 Dubai – EPFL hosts the space weeks at the Swiss Pavilion

October 17, 2021 @ 08:00 October 30, 2021 @ 17:00 UTC+0

On October 17th – 30th 2021, the exhibition “Switzerland, a space nation” will showcase our country’s over half-century of active international participation in the space field, EPFL expertise in space education, research and innovation and raise awareness on space sustainability. Visitors would also be able to experience virtual space outreach projects and attend a large program of conferences.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) will be hosted by Presence Suisse and Swissnex during the space weeks at the Swiss Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai. This is a great opportunity to highlight that Switzerland has been an important space actor since the 60’s, including participation in Apollo missions, and is a founding member of the European Space Agency (ESA).

Thanks to its specific political, educational and industrial landscape, the “Swiss made” added-value is to be found in many space missions all over the World.
