Space Exploration Investments: Turning Uncertainty into Measurable Risk and Benefits

February 9 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Secure World Foundation

The SDA Bocconi School of Management-SEE Lab, the Secure World Foundation, and the Space Policy Institute are hosting a workshop which will discuss ways to evaluate and measure the risks associated with investments in space exploration ventures and on the need to better define viable and affordable options for investors to seize uncertainties. The basic question of whether investments in space exploration activities are “unique” and distinct from more traditional ones needs to be fully addressed and understood to identify the right tools to translate associated uncertainties into measurable risks and create a favorable environment to stimulate investments.


09:30am – 10:00am ET: Introduction and Keynote
10:00am – 11:30am ET: Panel 1: Space exploration investing uncertainties
11:45am – 12:30pm ET: Panel 2: Experiences from space exploration investments

2:30pm – 3:30pm ET: Breakout Sessions
3:30pm – 4:30pm ET: Panel 4: Summary of Breakout Sessions emphasizing conclusions from the day’s panels and activities
