Extreme Environments - from the Antarctic to Space

The Techweek '18 featured Christchurch event Extreme Environments – from the Antarctic to Space is bringing together local, national and international experts to help attendees understand how exploration in the Antarctic impacts on exploration in Space, and how Christchurch and New Zealand can leverage work underway in both fields.

Come and hear from world-class speakers and see the grand final of the inaugural NZ Space Challenge, where regional finalists pitch their Antarctic navigation innovations to a panel of national and international judges.

Techweek’s aim

The intention behind Techweek is simple. New Zealand’s technology and innovation sectors are growing rapidly and Techweek fosters that growth by providing the national ecosystem with a week-long opportunity for connection and cross-pollination, and an independent platform through which to amplify New Zealand’s unique and inspiring innovation stories to the world.

In the years to come, Techweek’s vision is for New Zealand to be globally recognised as a beautiful country where world-leading solutions are born. It’s not just about showcasing leading edge technology, but amplifying brilliant ideas that are solving the biggest global challenges – innovation that’s good for the world.
