After the very successful first Executive Space Course held in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2021 – in collaboration with the Ramon Foundation – the International Space University (ISU) is running a second edition from 6 to 10 November 2022.
This course aims to provide a global overview of space and space related subjects in line with the current area of private space endeavors and trends in the global space industry.
The program is designed for executives, venture capitalists, high-tech, engineers and representatives of companies interested in developing within the NewSpace sector. The Executive Space Course in Israel will be delivered in Tel Aviv to attract and appeal to Middle East individuals and companies and beyond.
The Israeli space scene has recently gained further momentum following the announcement of Eitan Stibbe’s AX-1 flight into space on the ‘Rakia’ mission. Stibbe plans to conduct on the ISS many Israeli scientific experiments, introducing the innovation of the Israeli start-up nation philosophy to the global space industry in order to expand global space collaboration with Israel.
The International Space University’s faculty members are senior officials at NASA and the European Space Agency, experts from global consulting firms, investors, space mission managers, and well-known figures in the Israeli space industry. The syllabus will be composed by ISU alumnus and member of the ISU board of trustees – Mr. Ofer Lapid – who is also one of Israel’s space experts and adviser to the Israeli Space Agency.
“Bringing the International Space University to Haifa via the Space Studies Program in 2016 and then to Tel Aviv in 2021 via the Executive Space Course has already opened new doors for executives in high-tech companies, investment funds, and in other industries that are interested in entering the global space market,” said Ran Livne, CEO of the Ramon Foundation. “The ISU features lecturers who are the best space experts in the world, opening up new horizons and removing barriers for space course participants to enter the new space sector.”
