Models of Governance of National Space Activities in
the Evolving European Framework:
Optimising Benefits from Participation in European Programmes
Eurisy Conference
in Budapest / Hungary, 26-27 January 2009

Directors of the European Space Agency (ESA) and a large number of European space agencies, high representatives of the European Parliament, the European Commission and of other organisations involved in space activities are meeting in Budapest on 26-27 January to discuss national and European strategies for successfully organising space programmes.

The European space landscape is currently undergoing major changes: the European Space Policy is being implemented, ESA is enlarging to new EU Member States and important space programmes such as Galileo and GMES are being driven forward under a common European roof.
While European space programmes must optimally benefit from the different assets of all European states, each participating European country has to organise its activities among its national space institutions, industry, research, users, etc. according to structures, traditions and sizes that vary considerably from one country to another. Fine tuning governance on national level will ensure that European countries can maximise the benefits from their engagement in European programmes.

Eurisy is organising the above Conference in Budapest to explore:
- How to best shape national governance of space activities in order to maximise the national benefit from a country’s private and public sectors engagement, given specific national contexts?
- Where and how national space actors could engage effectively on the European level for their society to benefit most from this engagement?

The Conference is organised by Eurisy in cooperation with the Hungarian Space Office (HSO) and the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), and with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA), the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) and the Agenzia Spaziale Italiana (ASI).

The press is welcome to attend and can register during the Conference. Bilateral interviews can be organized on demand to the Eurisy Secretariat.
