Space. Discover what it brings to your life at European Space Expo in Madrid (Spain). The exhibition goes on display from 12 to 18 February 2013.
The European Commission has launched this European Expo to show how space and its applications provide benefits to Europe’s citizens. The Expo will highlight the critical role of the European Union in space and space-based technologies.
Through the investment in the flagship programmes of Galileo, EGNOS and GMES, the citizens of Europe will benefit from the many services and applications, which are expected to create global market opportunities and help to support job creation and economic growth.
Presented for the eighth time soon in Madrid, visitors to the Expo can see, touch and experience the wide range of innovative technologies and services that space offers them.
