Yearbook on Space Policy

The Yearbook on Space Policy is an annual publication, which provides an overview of major developments and trends in space policy, industry, programmes, economy and overall worldwide activity over the year. The ESPI Yearbook does not aim to be comprehensive but rather to provide useful information, data and insights on a selection of topics expected to shape the future of the global and European space sector.
