The Karman Project

We know that space is impactful, and we work with global leaders


We accelerate trust, cooperation and positive impact in a sector that promotes the idea of the global citizen and works to solve some of the most time-critical challenges that we face on Earth.


We believe in transmitting cross-disciplinary and cross-regional perspectives among those who are shaping the future of space, and amplifying their voices in strategic discussions.


We work with a network of trusted partners and sponsors to support space leaders in creating tangible impact across key focus areas for international cooperation.
