Saudi Arabia’s Space Odyssey: Navigating the Future of Space Exploration

In a significant stride toward advancing its presence in the global space sector, Saudi Arabia has joined hands with the World Economic Forum to establish a Center for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (C4IR) focused on space.

This groundbreaking initiative marks a pivotal moment for the Kingdom as it delves into the realms of space exploration and innovation.

Collaboration for Space Futures

In a landmark collaboration, the Saudi Space Agency has partnered with the World Economic Forum to establish the Center for Space Futures.

This will be the first center within the network of Fourth Industrial Revolution Centers to focus solely on space-related initiatives. It will collaborate with the Kingdom’s existing national center, C4IR Saudi Arabia, to achieve Saudi Vision 2030, the Kingdom’s ambitious roadmap for economic diversification, global engagement, and overall quality of life enhancement. 

Set to open its doors in autumn 2024, this center represents a monumental leap toward harnessing the vast opportunities offered by space exploration. Through public-private discussions on space collaboration, it aims to incorporate best practices from the Forum and its communities into the global space sector.
