Event description

Description

The space industry generates an estimated €300 million each year for Irish companies. In this panel discussion, we ask about Ireland's contribution to the space race — and is there room to grow it even more? From innovative technology aboard the International Space Station to point of-care diagnostic technology used to assess the impact of space travel on the health of astronauts, we look at the companies who are making the leap toward space exploration and realising Ireland’s potential in space. With an introduction from Bryan Rodgers of Enterprise Ireland joined by a panel discussion with David McKeown, Norah Patten and Barry Twomey.
