IE AIR & SPACE INITIATIVE
IE Air & Space Initiative
As the world of business and industry look towards the stars, the IE Air & Space Initiative considers what that means for business opportunities both on Earth and beyond.
The IE Air & Space Initiative was created by students, alumni and faculty interested in forming part of the conversation about this fascinating industry. Space is the next business frontier that promises to have a profound effect on society as a whole.
We are defined by our capacity to explore and innovate. Today, we can’t imagine life without GPS, instant global communication, or the technology that allows us to get anywhere in the world in under 24 hours. Tomorrow, advancements such asteroid mining, space tourism, space manufacturing or discoveries in medicine as a result of zero gravity research could change the course of business.
Curious to know more? Join us and be part of the conversation.
Who we are and what we do
The IE Air & Space Initiative was launched by a group of students, alumni and faculty with a keen interest in the space industry, and a desire to learn more and involve IE in the conversation surrounding the business of space.
We bring our students and partners closer to key space industry players by creating a network within which ideas, insights and knowledge are exchanged through a series of events, roundtables, panels and much more.
We are committed to sharing the knowledge gathered through the initiative with our peers, by developing a series of video interviews and podcasts for our IE Space Talks series.
