The Week on Micro & Nano Technologies for Space 2010 is an event organized jointly by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the CANEUS International Organization to be held at ESTEC (NL) on September 13-17, 2010. This unique event builds on the previous six ESA round-tables on MNT for space and five CANEUS World Conferences and Workshops.

The 7th ESA Round-Table on MNT for Space Applications

Already widely used in Earth-bound applications, Micro and Nano Technologies (MNT) present important advantages for space applications like Earth observation, navigation, communications and scientific missions by:

  • Fostering new types of scientific missions and instruments
  • Reducing cost, size, mass and time from mission conception to launch
  • Increasing performances, reliability and redundancy.

As end-user, the European Space Agency (ESA), is promoting the use of state of the art technologies for space applications by inviting you to attend and contribute ...

The CANEUS 2010 Workshops

CANEUS Workshops are dedicated to fostering international collaboration on the development of advanced micro and nanotechnologies (MNT) from concepts to ultimate infusion into next generation aerospace systems. The CANEUS Workshops take a practical approach to efficiently overcoming the challenges associated with matching aerospace application needs with the new capabilities offered by emerging micro and nanotechnologies. The workshop program emphasizes measurable deliverables with lasting impact for the aerospace industry. The objective of the CANEUS 2010 Workshops is to oversee the formation of international public/private partnerships within the space community ...
