Seasons Greetings

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Partners,

As the year draws to a close, we want to extend warm seasons greetings to all of you. It has been a year of remarkable achievements, shared endeavors, and collaborative strides in the aerospace industry.

Together, we have reached new heights, pushing the boundaries of innovation and knowledge. The Munich New Space Summit brought together visionaries of various fields, fostering a global community dedicated to exploring the limitless possibilities of space. Our Summer School empowered the next generation of aerospace professionals, inspiring them with passion and expertise.

Here is a comprehensive review of the key highlights from Munich Aerospace’s dynamic year:

Munich New Space Summit: Where Boundaries Fade and Opportunities Rise

The Munich New Space Summit held in May emerged as a cornerstone event, bringing together industry leaders, researchers, and enthusiasts to delve into the latest trends and technologies shaping the New Space sector. The summit served as a melting pot of ideas, fostering interdisciplinary discussions on topics ranging from space exploration and satellite technology to sustainable space practices. The diverse array of speakers and panel discussions underscored Munich Aerospace’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of space innovation.

The summit’s emphasis on fostering collaboration among international players highlighted Munich Aerospace’s dedication to building a global community of experts working towards a shared vision of the future in space exploration and technology.

Summer School: Nurturing Tomorrow’s Aerospace Pioneers

Munich Aerospace’s Summer School, a highlight of our educational initiatives, provided an intense mix of input for aspiring aerospace professionals. The students had the unique possibility to engage with leading experts, participate in the fields of Space Exploration & Space Safety, and gain valuable insights into the intricacies of aerospace research and development. The Summer School made a significant contribution to shaping the next generation of aerospace professionals. Participants had the opportunity to listen to latest research projects, fostering a sense of innovation and entrepreneurship crucial for the evolution of the aerospace industry.

Forum Munich Aerospace: Bridging Research and Industry

In cooperation with TUM, Munich Aerospace organizes expert lectures from industry and science. Chairs, scientific institutions and companies have the opportunity to present projects and findings and to get in contact with students. After the lectures, there is room for a technical discussion as well as for a personal exchange.

In the winter semester 23/24, we took over the overall organization of the forum. We started the semester with a lecture on the topic of “Survival in Space”. For the first time, we held a lecture on the TUM campus in Ottobrunn – a great start to the semester and a complete success!

STEMpower Women: Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is exemplified through our STEMpower Women initiative. This program, designed to empower women in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, addressed the gender gap prevalent in the aerospace industry.

Through networking events, and inspirational talks, STEMpower Women created a supportive environment for women in aerospace, fostering a sense of community and empowerment. In November, we organized an event in collaboration with Hensoldt, where over 30 women came together to hear inspiring stories from female leaders and get an insight into lab work at Hensoldt.

In conclusion, 2023 was an outstanding year for us, strengthening Munich Aerospace’s role as one of the frontrunners in the Bavarian aerospace ecosystem. From international summits and educational programs to forums bridging research and industry, Munich Aerospace has demonstrated a relentless pursuit of excellence, innovation, and inclusivity. As we look ahead, the legacy of 2023 sets a solid foundation for our continued leadership in shaping the future of aerospace.

Season’s greetings to you and your loved ones. May the holidays be filled with joy, warmth, and the spirit of collaboration!

Best wishes,

Munich Aerospace Team
