In this keynote, space expert and astronaut trainer Nancy Vermeulen will broaden your perspective on the world, space, and the economy. What can we learn from manned journeys to other planets? What obstacles must be overcome? What does the future of space exploration look like, and what will be its impact on our world?

Discover the future of space exploration

What developments can we expect in the coming years? Is the future on the moon, or perhaps on Mars? Can we live on another planet? What obstacles do we still need to overcome?

Gain insight into the imminent space economy

We are inevitably evolving toward a space economy. Our actions will no longer stop at the border of our planet. Mining materials on other planets, growing food on the moon, manufacturing materials in a weightless environment – will all of this soon be possible? One thing is certain: space exploration will profoundly transform our economy.

Learn to see space as a source of new products

The rescue blanket that we all know from first aid was originally developed for space exploration – to protect the space capsule from heat. Insulation materials, solar panels, GPS, memory foam, and shock-absorbing shoes were all developed with space applications in mind. What other innovations can arise in this way?

Get a different perspective on contemporary challenges

From space, we have a much clearer overview of the global challenges that we must face. Global warming, the evolution of fish stocks, the melting of polar ice caps, the expansion of desert areas and natural disasters – all of these can be much better monitored from space. During this keynote, you will discover that space exploration serves more than just political and economic interests.

Gain psychological insight into your team's functioning

Lastly, there is the psychological aspect. There are many parallels between business and space exploration. In both cases, the greatest challenge lies in the human psyche and coping with a changes. Nancy Vermeulen and her team spent 14 days in the desolate Utah desert, simulating an expedition to Mars, to learn how teams can function and communicate under extreme conditions. These methods and training techniques are directly applicable to the business world.

Valuable insights from aerospace and space exploration

During the most advanced technological journeys into space, it’s repeatedly shown that humans themselves are the critical factor. That’s why leading space agencies such as NASA and ESA are investing significant resources to understand and control these human factors.

In the aviation industry, the technical investment in quality and safety has been enormous during the past decades and the limit has been reached. To further improve safety and quality, intensive emphasis is now being placed on human aspects. In doing so, the goal is nothing short of achieving the best results and utmost excellence. It's no longer sufficient to choose pilots solely based on their technical expertise and knowledge. Their interpersonal skills now play a pivotal role.

Companies and organizations worldwide are currently facing complex challenges. The rapid rise of technology will completely reshape the competitive playing field. The looming threat of resource conflicts is intensifying due to increasing scarcity. As a result, our geopolitical world responds by venturing into space, and this response reverberates back to Earth. We are on the brink of a groundbreaking economic revolution, with an emerging space economy taking the lead role.

In a scenario very reminiscent of previous maritime and aviation revolutions, this shift promises to profoundly change our economy and business world. In this new era, companies will have to adapt to stay relevant.

Human factors as a key to sustainable growth and business success

Within the aerospace industry lies a true treasure trove of knowledge and experience that can serve as an inspiration for any type of business. During her presentation, Nancy unveils a wealth of insights in the realms of communication, leadership, information processing, assertiveness, empathy, and the delicate art of teamwork.

Investing in these human factors offers numerous advantages for companies accross various sectors. Not only can they further optimize safety issues, but they can also ensure well-founded profit models and quality. The ultimate goal is to pave the way for sustainable long-term growth, a course that extends beyond short-term quarterly profits.
