The conference -2d Edition-
Mars To Earth 2019 will focus on the applications of the Mars / Space research programs which are already available to trigger added valued economic impact on terrestrial commercial and industrial activities.
The Human exploration of Mars will generate a positive effect on many industrial sectors on Earth, contributing to a radical change in the technological and economic scenario on our planet.
The conference welcomes people from industrial and space research backgrounds as well as potential investors to analyze joint possibilities of future cooperation.
The location of the conference, the city of Milan, is at the heart of one of the most important industrialized areas in the world, and hopes to be an omen for the future role of Lombardia region, of Italy and of Europe in the Space Economy.

Mars to Earth Award
The Mars To Earth Award is foreseen for projects of students which deal with the terrestrial application of some Mars research and studies.
Mars to Earth Award is divided in 3 categories:
- Best Mars Project
A technological project based on Mars studies.
- Best Mars Poster
A presentation of a key technology and innovative idea arisen from Mars research which could be applied to a terrestrial case.
- Best Mars App
A software app illustrating the nature of Mars, or a Mars technology both for educational and scientific purpose.
The projects selection will be made by a jury of Space specialists in the afternoon of Friday 12th April, after the presentation of the single projects.
To partecipate to the selection send your projects description to firstname.lastname@example.org.
