03 November 2017. A new contribution to the series Voices from the Space Community is now online. Following her presentation during ESPI 11th Autumn Conference, Mrs. Isabelle Duvaux-Béchon, Head of the Member States Relations and Partnerships Office at ESA, presents in this paper, written in collaboration with Ulrike Bohlmann, the concept of Space 4.0, the guiding vision of ESA. Space 4.0 has been coined as the motto of the current space age and is a guiding vision for ESA as an analogy to the concept of Industry 4.0 on Earth. Building on the earlier eras of astronomy, competition and cooperation, a 4th era is emerging that should see more and more programmes done in participation around the world. ESA programmes and activities in the frame of this Space 4.0 age resonate with the actions to Inform, Innovate, Interact and Inspire, “Space 4.0i”. Download the paper here.
