Purpose and goals of the workshop

The purpose of the workshop is to create an understanding of how the four aerospace companies involved in the RIT project, work with product development and innovation. The companies will share their experiences and learn at the same time. Graduate students at LTU’s graduate school of space technology, regional companies that are interested in cooperation with the aerospace industry and other participants in the workshop will gain insight into the space innovation system and identify their role in the ecosystem. The goal is to encourage and strengthening innovation support within the space industry.
