Signature event

Bicentennial Space Research Conference

May 3, 2022 to May 4, 2022

Join McGill’s astronauts and the world’s top academic researchers, business pioneers, and government leaders in space and aerospace for two days of cross-industry exchange in Montreal.

McGill’s Space Research Conference will bring major sectors of the international space and aerospace communities together for two days to examine space issues from multiple perspectives–including engineering, healthcare, law and space science–all with an eye on the future. Over the coming decades, as the aerospace sector shifts its focus towards enabling space travel, an integrated space and aerospace ecosystem is expected to emerge. As the University enters its third century, McGill’s Bicentennial Space Week provides a perfect platform for the conference’s theme, What Is Our Future in Space?, as participants will journey far beyond 2022 to focus on critical space issues 25, 50 and even 100 years in the future.
