The EPIC Workshop 2022 took place from 04 to 08 April 2022 at the DLR site in Cologne-Porz, Germany bringing together more than 300 professionals in the field of space electric propulsion from around Europe. The iFACT coordinator, Dr. Franz Georg Hey (Airbus Defense & Space), attended the hybrid event, presented “Disruptive Line – EPIC Project iFACT” on the 5th of April and participated in panel discussions.
The five-day event was a resounding success with 66 presentations in total, on top of 7 startup pitches and 4 panel discussions. It was the first hybrid event ever held by DLR, and it was live streamed to hundreds of viewers making it also possible for high-profile individuals to attend panels and even moderate them. Among the event’s highlights was the Startup Day through which established players in the industry gained new insights into innovative ideas from the newcomers in the industry.
The EPIC Workshop 2022 was a huge success, and we look forward to more EPIC-related events in the future!
