Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Oxfordshire, UK
This is the second of a series of 3 workshops, jointly organised by the EU and ESA, which aim at ensuring a wide consultation process of all concerned stakeholders in Europe, as a contribution to the definition of a European view on space exploration. The outcome of the workshops will be used as an input for the joint EU-ESA view on exploration and for the second high level international exploration conference to be held in Brussels in October 2010.
- Underline the role of space exploration as an engine for innovation and industrial competitiveness and technological progress
- Review the opportunities and challenges for the space industry in future exploration endeavours
- Illustrate the opportunities to increase the footprint of non-space stakeholders using space exploration as a challenge for innovation and foster trans-sectoral synergies Provide suggestions for policy conclusions in relation to innovation, industrial competitiveness and technological advance within exploration
For the purpose of these workshops the following definition of space exploration is proposed: "Space exploration can be considered as the combination of robotic and human activities for the discovery of extra-terrestrial environments - that will open up new frontiers for the acquisition of knowledge and peaceful expansion of humankind"
The agenda of the workshop as well as the presentations that were given at this workshop will be available soon
