Digital transformation and space technologies

The initiative by Thales Alenia Space is fully supported by the Ministry of the Economy and the Luxembourg Space Agency.

“Digital transformation and space technologies have become a crucial topic for businesses in today’s rapidly changing and complex environment,” said Étienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy. “Luxembourg therefore strives to nurture the latest digital technological developments to achieve the digital economy of tomorrow. In line with our data-driven innovation strategy and policy for the development of commercial space, Luxembourg is well-positioned to work with Thales Alenia Space to foster technologies that can support an efficient and sustainable space sector, as well as encourage further uptake of space-based products by end users.”
