05: Space Policy: A New Strategic Challenge for Europe

-
Alpbacher Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The intention to embed space policy firmly in the European Constitution as well as in the White Paper of the European Commission are signs of a new conscience of its importance for Europe. The scientific discoveries of the space sector and the new technologies and their applications are to be put into service for Europe and her citizens. This effort is centered around Europe’s demand for independent access to space, for international competition and enhanced consideration of environmental and security aspects of space technology. In addition, these activities also provide an important contribution to support the common foreign and security policy, as shown for instance by Dual-Use Applications in the framework of the Galileo Program and within the GMES initiative.
The establishment of the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) in Vienna provides Austria with a think tank for the development of future European strategies in space policy.
