About Seminar

The International workshop «Space Days in Kazakhstan – 2016» devoted to the experience and prospects of cutting-edge technologies and is timed to the 25th anniversary of Independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan. For quarter of a century the space activity in Kazakhstan has gone through several stages of its development. Our country is now at the stage of implementing large-scale space projects which will create the basis for the space industry in Kazakhstan.

«By 2030 Kazakhstan must expand its niche on the global market for space services and bring to fruition a number of current projects. I mean the assembly, integration and testing complex of spacecrafts in Astana, the Earth remote sensing space system, the national system of space monitoring and ground infrastructure, high accuracy satellite navigation system», - noted the President of country Nazarbayev N.A. in his Address to the people of Kazakhstan. This speech of the Head of State is currently a Program of action for Kascosmos.

«The thing which is being tested in space, it is impossible to do on the ground. Gaining the whole experience of research, the scientists make great discoveries on the ground. So any money that the State sends to space, they are compensated. The entire world is competing in this» , - noted Nazarbayev N. Kazakhstan is also involved in this great competition for space exploration. A platform to exchange experience and discuss the prospects of Kazakhstan’s space industry will be the IV International workshop «Space Days in Kazakhstan – 2016».

Annually, the workshop brings together 400 participants from more than 50 countries. Company’s strategic partner Airbus Defence and Space (France) is the stable platinum sponsor of the Workshop.

Experience and scope of all previous workshops showed a high demand for the use of space technologies in various sectors of the economy, both by public sector organizations and private companies. Through this workshop further fruitful cooperation was established with colleagues from near and far abroad in the frame of ERS and HSNS.

In the frame of the international workshop “Space Days in Kazakhstan – 2016” the following directions were defined:

  • User experience of ERS and HSNS technologies in sectors of the economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan;
  • Prospects for the development of space technologies and attraction of the investments to the space activities of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
  • Development of innovative space technologies and experience of application of ERS, HSNS data by start-up companies, universities and scientific organizations of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The purpose of the Workshop:
