About The Summit

Space is crucial to our everyday lives. Everything from transport to telecommunication, security to
the management of natural disasters, agriculture to financial transactions relies on space. It is central
to the well-being of our societies, not only positively contributing to many aspects of our lives, but
also providing new and exciting opportunities for many sectors of our economy.

Recognising the importance of this domain, Portugal has set sail for space.
