Technology, Science & Business… Or just the future?

How is space related to mobile banking? Is an astronaut the businessman of the future? Or perception is just our reality? From science to everyday life, everything is interconnected. How do innovative ideas become applications? Is it luck or just a matter of inspiration?

Fame Lab Winners / Science Communication 

Ermis Zaharopoulos & Antonia Karamolegos
Fame Lab Winner and Runner Up

Could you inspire and educate a live audience about your work in science, technology, maths or engineering – in just three minutes? That’s the FameLab spirit. FameLab is a global competition, organised by the British Council, whose goal is to find and support the world's most talented new science communicators and to encourage young scientists to inspire and excite the public’s imagination with a vision of science in the 21st century. Ermis Zacharopoulos and Antonia Karamolegos, who have finished in the 1st and 2nd place respectively in this years’ competition, will make a FameLab-style presentation, try to attract people to science communication and share their experience with the audience. 

The long and winding road to a Startup

Stelios Arhondakis

CEO, BioCoS (Bioinformatics and Computational Science)

Entrepreneurship is big. You just won't believe how vastly, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way from Academia to the Business world, but that's just peanuts to Entrepreneurship. Did you think that the way to a Startup was a straight line? Don’t say that nobody warned you, YOU the ambitious founder of the next best startup, about the long winding path ahead. Take notes, this talk will give you the recipe. Hint: you have the innovative idea, add the original research concept sprinkle them with abundant consideration of the market requirements, shake well and serve with a pinch of high-risk fast decisions. Chin-chin!

Space 4.0: Interconnecting science, industry, politics and society

Christina Giannopapa

European Space Agency

Space technologies and applications are today an indispensable part of our daily life. Space in the past was about science and astronomy (Space 1.0), the race in space between the USA and Russia (Space 2.0) and international cooperation (Space 3.0). Today, there is an increasing number of space faring nations and increased commercialisation in the new era of “Space 4.0”. Space 4.0 together with Industry 4.0 will be the driver for contemporary technologies in automation, miniaturisation, advanced manufacturing, machine to machine/human interaction, connectivity, big data, biotechnology, etc. It helps in developing implementing and monitoring a number of sectorial policies e.g. maritime, agriculture, environment, transport, regional development, disaster management, security and defence. This talk will focus on how space 4.0 is expected to change the life of the citizen, politicians, public sector, and businesses. It will demonstrate how space becomes an enabler for knowledge, jobs and growth, decision and policy making, inspiring and motivating the next generations.
