The European Space Forum will return to Brussels in 2023, and will once again bring together key stakeholders and thought leaders for 2 full days of face-to-face debate. Against the backdrop of the recently released EU Space Strategy for Security and Defence, this year’s event will have the theme of ‘Strength, security, resilience – Protecting Europe’s interests in and through space’. Focussing on the key pillars of security & defence, sustainability, competition, innovation and connectivity, the event will provide the opportunity to come together and discuss key challenges and opportunities as Europe looks to deliver on its space ambitions and secure its position as a strong and resilient leader in the global space market.


Submissions for the 2023 ‘Innovation in Space Award’ & ‘Sustainability in Space Award’ are now open! Download your submission form below and complete and return to by 31 May.

The ‘Innovation in Space Award‘ and ‘Sustainability in Space Award‘ celebrates European projects and organisations which are at the forefront of innovation and sustainable developments within the space and space technology sectors. Awarded on an annual basis and open to companies and projects of all kinds, the award seeks to recognise the contribution and impact that an organisation or project has had on the space industry and on society more broadly.

The winner of the awards will be selected by a panel of expert judges (including representatives from the European Commission, ESA and leading space and satellites trade associations), with participants at The European Space Forum also getting a say through an audience vote. Nominees will be judged on the unique and innovative nature of their service offerings, but also on the impact that they have made on the sector and broader society, their long-term feasibility and scalability; and the potential that they may have for inspiring future actors within the sector.
