October 26, 2023
On October 7-8, in Maryina Gorka, the Republic of Belarus, at the site of the Aquarelle Ecopark, a large-scale event on industrial space exploration the NRNSI 2023 Conference was held.
The Head of the UNIDO Centre in the Russian Federation, Mr. Igor Kozhin, delivered a welcome speech to the conference participants. In his speech, he emphasized that UNIDO acts as a partner for the implementation of technology and knowledge transfer projects, investment partnership programmes, and that the organization strives to support the cooperation of public and private industrial enterprises, development institutions and scientific institutions in both industrialized and developing countries. Also, the Head of the UNIDO Centre expressed his confidence that in the spirit of solidarity and cooperation we can truly change the world and make it a better place.
The main goal of the NRNSI 2023 Conference is the establishment of a technological base for the construction of the space industry in low-Earth orbit and the solution of modern environmental, food, raw materials and economic problems of mankind, as well as the exchange of scientific and practical knowledge and experience, generalization of the results of scientific, research and scientific-practical work necessary for the effective implementation of the space vector of human development through the rocket-free industrialization of near space.
The main thesis of the last conference was “Earth is for life, space is for industry.”
The conference was held as part of the UN World Space Week and brought together more than 1,000 representatives from 21 countries: speakers, honored guests and listeners.
In the scientific and technical sections of the conference, reports were made, and discussions were held on the design and modeling of a general planetary vehicle (GVT), calculations of engineering structures, a hyper-high-speed transport system, construction technologies and operating features of a ground-based GPV takeoff and landing overpass.
Within the framework of the ecological and biological sections, discussions were held on modern technologies for growing plants, organization and functioning of closed ecosystems.
The second day of the conference was devoted to social design and organization of people’s lives in closed systems.
The NRNSI 2023 conference provided a platform to strengthen collaboration between scientists and practitioners. The presented technological exchange and innovative projects have become a shining example of the concept of sustainable development, which in the future can achieve tangible practical results for the general welfare.
