10 June 2010. The Italian Space Agency ASI will, from July, provide one Resident Fellow to ESPI, as its President Enrico Saggese announced.
Meeting alongside the session of UNCOPUOS, where ASI hosted an exhibition, ASI’s President Enrico Saggese and ESPI’s Director Kai-Uwe Schrogl formalized the agreement that ASI will provide a Resident Fellow to ESPI from July. This Resident Fellow will lead studies and organize events in the framework of ESPI’s workplan. As the ASI President pointed out, the good development of ESPI and the growing impact of its products and activities led to the decision to increase ASI’s involvement in the Institute through this Fellowship. .
