A new space policy for Europe
Europe’s future in space and the opportunities it will offer were discussed at a conference held in the Hemicycle of the European Parliament in Brussels on 26 and 27 October. ESA's Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain addressed the audience at the opening session.
Organised with ESA and under the patronage of the President of the European Parliament, Mr Jerzy Buzek, this was 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 space activities in Europe. Top-level representatives of Europe, its institutions and industrialists, also participated in the debates.
