The NPOC Austria is coordinated by Prof Irmgard Marboe at the Department of European, International and Comparative Law of the University of Vienna. Its main objective is the promotion and development of space law in Austria. This includes a variety of activities such as the organization of events and conferences, the teaching of space law courses and the publication of space law-related works, including an annual Space Law Newsletter. In addition, the NPOC informs about recent space-related developments and events. Subpoints of Contact exist at the Universities of Graz, Innsbruck, Linz and Salzburg as well as at the University of Economics and Business Administration in Vienna and the Danube University of Krems.
The ECSL is glad to support a symposium being organised by the Competence Centre for Space Law and Space Policy at the University of Graz, Austria from 31 May to 1 June 2017. This symposium will focus on the topic of trends and challenges with regards to satellite-based Earth observation.
