Pursuant the well-received publication of the study “India in Space: Between Utility and Geopolitics” in January 2018, the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) has initiated a follow-up activity on “The State and Potential of Cooperation between Europe and India in Space Activities”. In the context of these new ESPI activities, we are taking advantage of the upcoming Bangalore Space Expo to organise a round table.


On 25 June 2018, ESPI Resident Fellow Marco Aliberti organised an event on the potential of space cooperation between Europe and India at the margins of the 2018 edition of the Toulouse Space Show.


On 27 June 2018, ESPI Resident Fellow Marco Aliberti was invited to deliver a lecture on the outlook of China’s outer space strategy at the 11th edition of the TOChina Summer School, which was held in Torino from 25 June to 6 July 2018.


The topic of spaceports, small satellites and small rockets is gaining more and more attention worldwide. The Austrian radio Ö1 dedicated an article on the recent announcement about the UK spaceport in Scotland, and interviewed ESPI Resident Fellow Matteo Tugnoli on this topic.


At the occasion of the Vienna Conference on Strategy, Dr. Annette Froehlich gave a talk on the “Interdependence between Space Law and Cyber Law and its Rights to Self-Defence” at the NDA (National Defence Academy).

Our Mission Statement
