Collaboration Opportunity: Robust and adaptive planning under deep uncertainties for space-based solar power

Blog post contributed by Kostas Konstantinidis. The European Space Agency (ESA) recently posted a call on space-based solar power on its idea platform (OSIP), to which I submitted a DMDU-relevant idea titled “Robust and adaptive planning under deep uncertainties for space-based solar power” that might be of interest to DMDU society members. The idea…
