Initiative seminar – Production in space

How to manufacture for space? Can you manufacture products on Mars? And how does Chalmers contribute to space technology and research? These are some of the questions we will focus on within the theme: Production in Space.

Sweden is a prominent space nation, much thanks to our space industry, which is largely located in Western Sweden. Chalmers is an important partner with a large variety of space research in numerous disciplines, not least production.

The interest for space has evolved the recent years. Initiatives like mass production of satelllites, has challenged the area of production and manufacturing, space travels and exploring Mars is other drivers for technologies such as additive manufacturing.

Welcome to an afternoon with many interesting guests and topics!
