Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really “hands-on”. In addition, lectures on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents as well as on business aspects are given. The future of satellite systems is also discussed. Main emphasis will be put on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realization till the marketing of the product or the service. International renowned scientists and specialists will give the lectures as well as the practical exercises and lab work.
