Prospects and Challenges for European Space Policy

on 22 September 2011

Space plays a vital role in contemporary social, economic and strategic arenas, benefiting a wide constituency of public and private interests.

Consequently, there is a growing interest in measures designed to enhance European Space Policy. Furthering the debate surrounding European Space Policy is a key objective of the C-SPACE project (Conditions for Space Policy And related action plan Consolidation in Europe), funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Program. The Project is coordinated by the Foundation for Strategic Research (based in Paris), and conducted by a consortium of European research organizations.

In order to disseminate the results of the C-SPACE project, the consortium is organizing a conference in Brussels, the 26th of September 2011, on 'PROSPECTS AND CHALLENGES FOR EUROPEAN SPACE POLICY'. The conference is intended to bring together representatives of a range of European organizations / institutions with an interest in space or space related activities.

The primary objective of the conference is to present the results of the project, which consists of analysis and recommendations on central aspects of European Space Policy. This will provide the basis for a public dissemination of findings in order to create a wider understanding of the value of Space to the European Union, thus promoting measures to develop and sustain European Space Policy.

The event is scheduled to take place at the Conseil Centrale de l’Economie, 17-21, avenue de la Joyeuse Entrée (Brussels).
