Europe’s future in space and the opportunities it will offer to us all will be discussed at a conference in Brussels on 26–27 October under the aegis of the European Parliament. Members of the public are invited to attend.
This conference, organised with the participation of ESA and under the high patronage of the President of the European Parliament, Mr Jerzy Buzek, is a new opportunity for the political decision-makers, company executives and representatives of civil society to discover and debate the political and financial stakes as well as the exciting industrial and service opportunities offered by the competence on the space policy of the EU.
The Convention of ESA, an International Treaty among 18 European States that entered into force in 1975, establishes that the purpose of the Agency is to foster cooperation among European states in space, by elaborating and implementing a long-term European Space Policy.
