The Workshop is being organized with participation of International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and Committee on Space Research (COSPAR), and it is cosponsored by European Space Agency (ESA) and by the Italian Space Agency (ASI). This Workshop is the 22nd in the series of meetings jointly organised by the Office for Outer Space Affairs, under the United Nations Programme on Space Applications, and by the International Astronautical Federation. It builds on the recommendations and experience gained from previous workshops. The UN/IAF Workshop has been endorsed by the United Nations General Assembly as part of the 2012 activities of the United Nations Programme on Space Applications. The UN/IAF Workshop and the 63rd IAC provide a unique forum for discussions among space experts, policy and decision makers, representatives from academic community and private industry. Participants are encouraged to share their experiences and to examine opportunities for better cooperation. In the past, contacts established among participants have resulted in a number of initiatives and activities strengthening the role of space technology applications for improving the quality of life in developing countries.
