The Austrian Space Forum
The Austrian Space Forum (Österreichisches Weltraum Forum, OeWF) is a national network for aerospace specialists and space enthusiasts. Our organization serves as a communication platform between the space sector and the public; it is embedded in a global network of specialists from the space industry, research and politics.
Hence, the OeWF facilitates a strengthening of the Austrian space sector through enhancing the public visibility of space activities, technical workshops and conferences as well as Forum-related projects.
The Forum has a small, but highly active pool of professional members contributing to space endeavours, mostly in cooperation with other -national as well as international- space organizations. The spectrum of our activities ranges from simple classroom presentations to 15.000-visitor space exhibitions, from expert reports for the Austrian federal ministry for technology to space technology transfer activities for terrestrial applications: we are Austria's space network.
In summary, the Austrian Space Forum is...
- a volunteer space organization, led by space professionals,
- focussing on space research (e.g. human-robotic Mars exploration) and outreach/education,
- an independant organisation funded via research projects, donations and outreach activities.
