The 69 th International Astronautical Congress (IAC) will take place in Bremen, Germany, and I am delighted to invite you all back to this city where already in 2003 the 54 th IAC was held with great success. Bremen is truly the "City of Space" in Germany, with its industry and cutting-edge research. Among the many fields of expertise found here are materials sciences and manufacturing technologies, space systems and research, remote sensing, bionics and robotics. The Galileo satellite navigation system and the upper stages of Ariane are just some of the major projects developed here in Bremen.
Our Local Organizer is ZARM, the Centre of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity, part of the Department of Production Engineering at the University of Bremen. Germany has already hosted several successful IACs; in fact, it is one of the countries that have hosted the most IACs over the years. This will be the sixth IAC organized in Germany since the first International Astronautical Congress in 1952 , which was held in Stuttgart.
The theme of IAC 2018, #InvolvingEveryone, aligns with IAF’s motto “Connecting @ll space people”. We believe it is crucial for the future of the space industry that we learn to successfully work together across borders, challenge norms and embrace diversity. I am confident that with the dedicated efforts of the Local Organizing Committee, supported by the whole of Team Germany and our partner organisations, the IISL and the IAA, the 69 th IAC will be an impressive event.
