GLIC 2015 is co-organized by the IAF, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology. The conference venue will be the famous Munich Residence Palace.

The conference is the latest in the IAF’s highly successful thematic “Global Series”, which began with the Global Lunar Conference (GLUC) in 2010 (Beijing, China), followed by the Global Exploration Conference (GLEX) in 2012 (Washington, US), and the Global Space Applications Conference (GLAC) in 2014 (Paris, France).

The primary goal of the Global Space Innovation Conference (GLIC 2015) is to provide to governments, space agencies, industries and entrepreneurs a high-level forum for exchange of experiences in innovation management and technology transfer. GLIC 2015 will be an exclusive networking event that highlights, investigates and discusses the key factors that enable successful space industry innovation and technology transfer to entrepreneurs. The conference will feature prominent individuals from the international space field as speakers and panelists discussing the major influencing dimensions of entrepreneurship and new venture creation.
