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.
