Horizon 2020 Space Work Programme 2018-2020 - Stakeholder Consultation Workshop
Published on: 07/10/2016
The workshop was organised in the context of preparing the next work programme of Horizon 2020 covering the period 2018-2020 and the transition to the next EU research and innovation framework programme. This exercise was aligned with the Commission's initiative of defining a Space Strategy for Europe.

Building upon previous stakeholder consultation steps, the workshop gathered complementary input from the European space sector, including industry, research organisations, academia and users, on the content of the Horizon 2020 LEIT-Space Work Programme 2018-2020.

The agenda was structured as a sequence of sessions covering the traditional building blocks of the work programme.
