Innovation, Inspiration and the Power of Collaboration: a Shared Vision for a Better World

Keynote: André Kuipers, ESA astronaut, Medical Doctor and Ambassador of the Earth, The Netherlands

André Kuipers is the first Dutchman with two space missions to his name; the second mission is the lonest spaceflight in European history. On board André was not only a medical doctor, scientist and flight engineer, but also handyman and ambassador for several charities.

In a world of constant challenges, where being at the forefront of stimulating innovations and translating them into a practical use can be demanding, collaboration is often the secret to success. Our Keynote Speaker is no stranger to the world of collaboration, of multi-disciplinarily action, and problem-solving. Combined with his inspirational viewpoint and his unique personal experience, André Kuipers will share a truly fascinating look at our world and leave us inspired about the opportunities we have to make a difference.

Moderator: Henric Rhedin, President-Elect, ASTP-Proton
