The sixth edition of the high-level Conference on EU Space Policy came at a crucial time, with the start of the European Union's Multiannual Financial Framework for the years 2014-20 and the upcoming ESA ministerial conference, due to take place at the end of 2015, making it the perfect moment to examine the future of Europe in Space.
The competitiveness of the European space industry; the international dimension of space; a prospective state of play of EU space programmes; the growing role of satellite telecommunications and the new challenges facing operators; the new challenges and opportunities for Europe in space; and, finally, the defence and security dimension of space services and activities: these were some of the many issues that have been discussed by space sector stakeholders (high-level representatives from the EU institutions, national decision-makers, heads of national agencies, the presidents and CEOs of numerous companies operating in the European space sector, and representatives of civil society and space application-users).
The conference was established under the patronage of the President of the European Commission, José Manuel Barroso, the President of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, and the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, and benefits from the support of the Vice-President of the European Commission, Antonio Tajani, and the Director-General of the European Space Agency, Jean-Jacques Dordain.
Attendance of the conference was free.
