Three years after formally committing to long-term sustainment of its space programs, the European Union has declared initial global radio-navigation services for Galileo (the EU's satellite navigation program) and has established international leadership in global Earth observation, in particular through its Copernicus program. The activation of Copernicus Emergency Management services to aid disaster efforts during the U.S. hurricane season is but the most visible part of the fruitful cooperation that this evolution has made possible.
The growing reliance on space as a critical infrastructure on both sides of the Atlantic, the upcoming proposals for the next 7-year financial framework for the EU, and a changed space governance in the U.S. bring about new challenges, but also opportunities for the future. In this context, our panel will review recent achievements and future opportunities for a deeper and broader EU-U.S. cooperation in space.
The event is free, but reservations are required. It is expected to fill up fast.
Please note that this event may be filmed or photographed.
