ESA SP-1270 European Utilisation Plan for the ISS
This document lays out the ESA priorities concerning utilisation and related activities on the International Space Station (ISS) and the resources required to implement these priorities. The document was developed in the course of 2002 and pulls together in a comprehensive and coherent fashion the established ESA priorities for ISS utilisation in the disciplines of Life and Physical Sciences, Space Science, Earth Observation, Technology and Commercial and Educational activities.
It was established in the context of a critical assessment by all ISS Partners of their research priorities in the light of potential stringent future resource (e.g. crew time and up/down load) limitations on ISS.
