HEALTH FROM SPACE (ESA), Mar 4-5, 2024, Cannes, FR

ESA and other sponsors from the space and biomedical sectors will hold the second Health from Space conference at the Palais des Congrès et des Festivals de Cannes in Cannes, FR from March 4-5, 2024.

More information is on the event’s website, which says:

The life sciences, health and related advanced biomaterial domains are on the verge of a disruptive evolution, actu​ally a revolution, thanks to the possibility to establish and operate facilities in space. However, most of the actors in these domains are unaware of these coming dramatic changes.

The pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry can be considered fully mature with turnovers each of more than one trillion per year and hundreds of millions of dollars in R&D annually. However, the new environment offered by space is poised to strongly impact those numbers positively. 

The potential scientific, technological, and commercial benefits of microgravity research and development as well as manufacturing in space are considerable and will revolutionize traditional Earth-bound development and processing methods for these whole sectors. 

This revolution will stem both from the easier access to space in terms of cost and flight opportunities, and from the new space platforms and private stations planned to be launched from all over the world. Together with the new advanced and miniaturized laboratories, these will provide researchers and industry alike with exceptional opportunities to conduct experiments in a disruptive microgravity environment that will meet scientific and manufacturing principal standards.

 The resulting number of applications is expected to increase drastically from new therapeutics to anti-aging, regenerative medicine, and to stem cell research in general to name just a few. The whole pharmaceutical, cosmetics, medical, biotechnology and biomaterial industries will become major participants in the frame of the commercialization of space.



March 4 @ 7:00 am
March 5 @ 11:00 pm
