History and purpose of the Practitioners' Forum

A one-day Practitioners' Forum has been organised every year since 1992. The aim of the Forum is to provide those working in the space sector with a forum for the exchange of views, knowledge and information.

During the Forum experts present the latest developments impacting on space in, for example: EU law, contracts and procurement law, telecommunications, liability and insurance, etc. The presentations are followed by a lively question, answer and discussion session.

The Forum promotes open and free discourse without personal attribution. Participants speak in their personal capacity under the Chatham House Rules and in general, papers are not collected or published.

Only ECSL members may participate in the Practitioners’ Forum. It will be possible to sign up and pay for membership on the day of the Forum but those who are already members will be given priority if capacity is reached on the day. We recommend organising your membership in advance.

All those wishing to attend should fill in the Registration Form (shortly to be available on the right side of this page) and return it to the Executive Secretary by email at: ecsl@esa.int.

The main conference suite at ESA Headquarters has plenty of capacity however should capacity be reached, places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

The programmes of the previous years' Forums are available on the right side of this page. Reports of the Forums are made available to members in the newsletter
