The PDC conference is the biggest scientific gathering in Europe in 2015 regarding planetary defence against asteroids and comets, hosted the 13-17th April by the International Academy of Astronautics (an independent non-governmental organization recognized by the United Nations in 1996).

EADP was present with 5 employees, our crowdfunding partners and Prof. Bong Wie of the Asteroid Defence Research Center at Iowa State University, to discuss the optimal use and development of HAIV technology, as well as gather international support for the implementation of a global asteroid defence for both long-term and short-term threats.
