16 September 2011. The 13th issue of the Newsletter for the European Space Policy Research and Academic Network (ESPRAN), operated by ESPI, is online.
In this issue readers will be able to find information on the latest highlights of ESPI and ESPRAN members’ activities. It covers the period between 1 June 2011 and 31 August 2011 which was marked by a major event involving an ESPRAN member. Together with the Prague Security Studies Institute, ESPI organised the first non-governmental conference dedicated to the topic space security through the transatlantic partnership. Another milestone in ESPI’s relation to its presence at European level was its invitation to introduce a top-level workshop session in the European Parliament. This issue also announces the publication of the “Yearbook on Space Policy 2009/2010 – Space for Society”, which covers in a concise and comprehensive manner global space related developments in 2009/2010. The newsletter counts this time with the profile of the Europäische Akademie zur Erforschung von Folgen wissenschaftlich-technischer Entwicklungen Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler (EA) and stresses the productive cooperation between this ESPRAN member and ESPI.
