Advisory Report 224 Flemish priorities for space research within ESA

W&I policy

On 1 and 2 December 2016 the ESA ministerial council meeting will take place. During this meeting the optional ESA-programs for the coming years and the contributions of the ESA member states for these programs are determined. The VRWI urges the federal government to subscribe more to those optional ESA-programs that better reflect Flanders' technological expertise, thus enhancing the presence of Flanders in them. The recommendations and priorities the VRWI suggests in the report are based on a thorough analysis of the technological strengths of the Flemish space sector (industry, academia and research centers).
