(DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATIONS AND WRITTEN CONTRIBUTIONS EXTENDED UNTIL 22 NOVEMBER 2010)<br/>On 8 December 2010 DG Enterprise and Industry will organise a hearing on the space theme in the Eighth Framework Programme for Research (FP8 Space). Brussels - DG Enterprise and Industry, Avenue d'Auderghem 45, BE 1040, 'Old-press room', 4th floor
The aim of the hearing is to give Europe's space research community an opportunity to
provide the European Commission with ideas to drive the preparation of the FP8 Space
theme. Hearing participants are expected to provide concrete input regarding the particular
research areas to be addressed, with a particular focus on any new areas that may not have
been adequately addressed under FP7-Space, and with the aim of identifying the space
research challenges to be addressed over the next decade. Directors of research from
universities, research centres and industry are particularly welcome.
