Space Law and Policy Seminar - Norway - 17 February 2017

The NPOC for Norway - the Norwegian Space Centre - together with ECSL will be organising a legal and policy workshop which will take place on 17 February 2017 at the offices of the Norwegian Space Centre in Oslo, Norway.

The purpose of this seminar is to highlight some of the legal and policy elements pertaining to space missions, in particular satellite missions, by providing an opportunity for industry, academia, government and other interested stakeholders to exchange and engage. Topics addressed will range from how space activities are governed in Europe and internationally, space law and, specifically, the legal and regulatory aspects which arise during the life cycle of a satellite mission: launch, in-orbit and end-of-life.
