Celebrating 60 years of EU and the EU Space Policy

As part of the celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Treaties of Rome and to commemorate the role of EU Space Policy and programmes in support of European Union integration, Rome hosted a high-level conference on ‘Space Policy for EU integration’ on June 14 and 15 June.

More than 200 representatives of the European Space sector, from industry representatives to government, Space agency and EU decision makers, gathered to reflect on three themes: Space as driver of EU integration, Space as a motor of EU growth and Space at the service of EU citizens. Europe’s Copernicus and Galileo flagship Space programmes featured as the stars of the event.

Giovanni Sylos-Labini (EARSC Vice Chairman) represented EARSC at this event. His intervention focused on the downstream sector reaffirming that it is time to establish an industrial strategy for attracting private financing and contributing to the sustainability of the European Space industry.
