Commission launches new space strategy Published on: 26/10/2016, Last update: 28/10/2016
EU space programmes already deliver services that benefit millions of people. The European space industry is strong and competitive, creating jobs and business opportunities for entrepreneurs. Today's proposal for a new space strategy will foster new services and promote Europe's leadership in space.
The Space Strategy for Europe responds to growing global competition, increasing private sector involvement and major technological shifts. The European Commission proposes a range of actions to allow Europeans to fully seize the benefits offered by space, create the right ecosystem for space start-ups to grow, promote Europe's leadership in space and increase its share on world space markets.
