SpaceUp NL 2014 was held on the 10th and 11th of May, 2014. During the event, full access was provided to the Space Expo exhibition. There was plenty of time for networking in addition to the lively sessions.

All time slots in the Session Grid were 20 minutes long. The Ariane hall and Astronauts hall were both equipped with A/V for slide presentations. On the Moon we welcomed participants to think out of the box and lead stimulating breakout discussions on topics of interest.
