On 27 and 28 November in Sevilla, Spain will take place the ESA Council at Ministerial level, "Space19+".
Ministers from ESA Member States will gather to discuss future space activities for Europe and the budget of ESA for the next three years.
The European Space Agency is seeking an increase in funding for the mandatory programme supported by all Member States, and for an ambitious portfolio of optional programmes. These are structured along four main pillars: science and exploration, space safety and security, applications and enabling and support activities.
The proposals carry an overarching motto of Inspiration, Competitiveness and Responsibility.
This video explains the challenges in Sevilla for Science, including a new cometary mission and missions to investigate Earth-like planets outside our solar system.
