McGill’s Space Research Conference: What is our future in Space?

Tuesday, May 3, 2022toWednesday, May 4, 2022

Leacock Building 855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 2T7, CA

McGill’s Space Research Conference will bring major sectors of the international space and aerospace communities together for two days to examine space topics from multiple perspectives – including engineering, healthcare, law and space science – all with an eye on the future. Over the coming decades, as the aerospace sector shifts its focus towards enabling space travel, an integrated space and aerospace ecosystem is expected to emerge.

McGill’s Bicentennial Space Week provides a dedicated platform for the conference’s theme, What Is Our Future in Space?, as participants will journey far beyond 2021 to focus on critical space issues – 25, 50 and even 100 years in the future
