International Space Convention (ISC) 2022, one of the world’s leading space events, has begun in Türkiye's Marmara province of Bursa.
The three-day event, which started on Friday, will host 80 speakers, including experts and officials from companies and space agencies such as European Space Agency and Turkish Space Agency.
During the event, a number of topics will be discussed, including autonomy in space, commercialization of space, and using space for international security challenges.
Organized by Altair Enterprises, a space education company, the event is hosted by Gokmen Space and Aviation Training Center (GUHEM), located in Bursa.
As Europe's largest center in its field, GUHEM was established in 2020 under the leadership of Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry in collaboration with the Bursa Municipality and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye.
With its interactive education systems, a space innovation laboratory, robotic programming, and space and aviation workshops, the center previously won an award at the European Property Awards in the category of Public Buildings.
Türkiye aims to host the International Astronautical Congress in 2025, which will be held in Paris in 2022, in Baku in 2023 and in Milan in 2024.
