TurinX: the new horizon of Space Economy

General description

Space economy?

What is this? It’s something that you can eat? It’s a new Spielberg’s movie?

No, Ladies and gentlemen, the Space Economy is a new frontier where space and digital technology come together to create new opportunities for business and technologies that would have been unthinkable until now.

There are several areas of development and all of them very interesting: satellites, more precision geolocation, construction for Lunar Space Stations, stellar tracking, artificial intelligence, robotics and whatever that can you imagine being related to space.

During our course you’ll have the opportunity to understand more about this new topic with lectures from the Politecnico di Torino, company visits (Turin is the italian city with the biggest number of industries related to the spatial sector) and workshops.

But that’s not all: in the week together you will get fully immersed in Italian culture!

During the week, you will discover all the secrets and mysteries of our city, you will enjoy the typical chocolate and the regional wine in one of the elegant squares in the city center and learn more about the city where Italy was born (yes, we were the first capital city of Italy).

Instead, during the weekends we will take a break in the surroundings of Turin, where you will have the opportunity to taste the delights that our country, and especially Piedmont, our region, have to offer!

What are you waiting for? Book your “space shuttle” and come to the city where innovation and tradition mix themselves in a breathtaking bowl created by the Alps!
