copy of washington_7.jpg 19 November 2009. Being one of only a few non U.S. during the past two decades, ESPI's Director was invited to testify before the Subcommittee on Space and Aeronautics of the U.S. House of Representatives today.

The topic of today's hearing in the Subcommittee on Space and Aerospace of the Committee on Science and Technology of the U.S. House of Representatives was "The Growth of Global Space Capabilities: What's Happening and Why It Matters". The witness list comprised four representatives from U.S. institutions and industry as well as ESPI's Director. It was remarked that this constituted one of only a handful of cases during the past two decades, where a non U.S. institution has been invited to witness in this Subcommittee. ESPI's Director Kai-Uwe Schrogl gave a statement (download here), which stressed the need for transatlantic cooperation and which outlined the most necessary and promising fields of cooperation. His input was received as a useful contribution to the considerations for shaping the international relations of the U.S. in space activities.
