After the resounding success of the inaugural Space for National Development (SND) conference in 2018, SANSA will again host SND week in November 2019 to gauge the state of the space landscape in South Africa. SANSA CEO, Dr Val Munsami is especially excited to learn more about the challenges and opportunities faced by the space sector in the country. “For us, it is very important to keep the stakeholders briefed, and to learn from them what their requirements and their challenges are,” Munsami says. “We want to understand the challenges that our stakeholders are facing, so that we can start to address them as an agency.” The theme for this year’s conference will be the future of space in South Africa in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The new dates for the conference is 12-14 November 2019 in Gauteng.
