In the European “Year of Creativity and Innovation”, the SpaceLand Expo-Congress from the 21st to the 22nd of September at Chia Laguna (Cagliari-Italy) presents at international level those opportunities stemming from the aerospace business for the progress of medicine, science, technology, culture and social-economic development.

Through the myriads interdisciplinary synergies  generated thanks to research and educational “parabolic flight programs” implemented and carried out in Sardinia to fly scientists, general public and experiments in “Moon-gravity”, “Mars-gravity” and “microgravity” flight conditions, the aim is to systematically involve the medicine & science world together with high-tech industry and entrepreneurs with the local economic entities, including SMEs, school & university populations, cultural & tourism work-force and infrastructures.

Such a system also addresses the new segment of “aerospace tourism”, with educational, communication and work opportunities featuring a high level of innovation, providing new stimuli for the local economic development and enlarging the cultural & tourism activities for national and international public.

The relevant added-value for science, technology, culture and economic development can thereby trigger a new virtuous cycle activating in a fully integrated way, 12-month-a-year, local and national excellences within the above mentioned fields, respectively, in order to link past heritage and future growth of a unique land ready to become the world’s first “Island of Space”.
