Signals in space: we use them to relay our long distance communication and to help us finding our way, they have become vital means to remotely monitor our earth, and to maybe unveil some mysteries of our universe. At the 2014 WIC Mid-Wintermeeting experts from different scientific domains and industrial leaders will shine their light on recent advances and innovative technologies which are ready to take off, involving ‘signals in space’. We’re looking forward to meeting you at this occasion on February 7th in Eindhoven.
