ESA Annual Report 2005
2005 was a crucial year in the Agency’s long-term development, with a great deal of time and effort inevitably devoted to preparing for the political and programmatic decisions to be taken at the ESA Council Meeting at Ministerial Level.
Those decisions by the Ministers put ESA on the correct trajectory, providing a long-term vision based on strategic guidelines, allowing us to prepare for the future, and addressing a consistent set of policies and programmes, aiming at increased efficiency and coherence within the Agency and in the European space sector.
