The Union is now moving forward rapidly on the development of its European Space Policy. Space activities are strategic for their contribution to the construction of Europe. Space is a tool to serve the interests of the Union, its Member States and its citizens: strategic influence, scientific progress, economic growth in the knowledge economy and security. The EU is increasingly a global actor. After enlargements, the EU’s strategic influence has increased. This requires reflection, adaptation and creation of the necessary instruments, including space policy.
