EXAMINING THE SOCIOECONOMIC BENEFITS OF THE ISS, Jan 29, 2020, Mountain View, CA, 1:00-3:30 pm PACIFIC Time

The ISS National Lab (also known as CASIS) and the Secure World Foundation (SWF) will hold the first in a two-event series to highlight and examine the socioeconomic benefits of the International Space Station (ISS).  It will take place at the SETI Institute, 189 N Bernardo Ave, Suite 200, Mountain View, CA from 1:00-3:30 pm Pacific Time.

More information is on the event’s website, which describes the event this way and says “virtual attendance will be available”:

Secure World Foundation and the ISS National Labs will co-host the first in a two-event series designed to highlight and examine the socioeconomic benefits of the International Space Station. Global efforts like the Sustainable Development Goals are benefiting from work being done on ISS but these activities have received little attention.

Speakers will be a diverse group of ISS National Lab partners, data end-users, and government representatives who can speak to unique work that’s being done, the observed or expected benefit on Earth, and the importance of maintaining the space environment to support this work.

Moderator: Krystal Wilson, Director of Program Planning, Secure World Foundation

As of January 15, speakers include:

  • John Cumbers, Founder, SynBioData
  • Marianna Grossman, Managing Partner, Minerva Ventures
