The Autumn Conference is a yearly ESPI event where space policy, agency and industry stakeholders come together to discuss issues that affect Europe and the rest of the world.
This year ESPI will organise its 12th Autumn Conference on the following topic: “Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes for Civilian Space Programmes”. Drawing on the findings of a joint research collaboration with George Washington University´s Space Policy Institute, the event will discuss the ongoing reshaping of European and American approaches to Space Security issues. Greater emphasis will be put on the criticality of future short- and long-term policy developments in this area and how to reach the full potential of a transatlantic cooperative approach in this specific field.
The 12th Autumn Conference will be a two-day event and will cover the following three sessions:
The event was intentionally designed to have a forward-looking vision on Space Security strategies to be endorsed on both sides of the Atlantic through a careful selection of speakers active in the field, both in the public and private sectors.
