The SpaCe Innovation Hub

The Space Innovation Hub is where we develop new ideas of how to use space to benefit society. It is where students learn how to use space to solve real life problems. It is where researchers develop innovative solutions to the challenges the society is facing, and it is where we welcome external collaborators to join our quest to use space to make Earth a better place.

The main activities in the Space Innovation Hub are:

Copernicus Masters competition - entry deadline July 19th 2021

The Danish CubeSat Program DISCO

ESA BIC

DEEP

- more to come!

 

In the Space Innovation Hub, we work on myriad of different experiments, where we collaborate with external public and private partners on the development and use of space technologies. Examples of such experiments are:

·      The use of Earth observations and machine learning to quantify biodiversity

·      The use of Earth observations and machine learning to map cultural heritage

·      The use of Earth observations and machine learning for mineral explorations

·      The use of k band communication on micro satellites

·      Inter-satellite communication in mega-constellations

·      The use of interferometric synthetic-aperture radar (InSAR) geological prospecting

·      Observations of greenhouse gas emission with remote sensing

 

The work in the Space Innovation Hub is distributed around many departments at the University and due to COVID-19 most of the collaborative work takes place online. But when we can meet physically again, the work in the Space Innovation Hub will be centered around the Kitchen.
