Simonetta di Pippo mentioned that the UN mission should happen in 2021 or 2022 depending on when the first flight of DC happens. It would last between 2 to 3 weeks but would not go to the ISS. There would be about 25 to 30 micro-gravity experiments plus some experiments outside of DC. Each experiment must have at least one sustainable development goal. It's open to developed countries but there is a focus on developing countries. Working with SNC on the announcement of opportunities.  It's a triangular cooperation between one or more developed country, developing or emerging countries and the UN Office for space affairs.

See the article linked below:

Article focused on Erin Ozmen.  I didn't notice anything new about Dream Chaser.  That said, I found it to be an interesting read.
