The next instalment in the Green Paper on European Space Policy consultation process will take place in Rome on Monday, 28 April 2003. The workshop will give relevant institutions a chance to voice their opinions on the future European Space Policy, including representatives from the European Commission (EC), the European Space Agency (ESA), EU Member States and Candidate Countries and national space agencies. Panel sessions will address all of the points outlined in the Green Paper. Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt will moderate the discussion. A provisional agenda is now available.
The Green Paper consultation process comprises a series of seminars, workshops and hearings currently taking place throughout Europe. Its aim is to foster a wide-ranging debate among national and international organisations, the European space industry, the scientific community and the general public. An exchange that includes all of the relevant stakeholders will help to shape a comprehensive EU Space Policy, to be detailed in a White Paper later this year.
Individual contributions to the discussion can be posted via the dedicated On-line Forum.
