The European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) is looking to employ a Research Intern for 3 to 6 months, starting beginning of 2019, to support a research activity on the topic of Space activities in Latin American countries.


Cyber security in space, as in other sectors, has become a most critical issue. Indeed, space infrastructures have become the target of increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks, perpetrated from a growing and extremely varied number of actors. This creates an unprecedented level of risk, particularly considering the mounting dependence of the global economy and society on space‐based services.


ESPI participated to IFRI/SWF Space Security Conference on November 27th. ESPI Coordinator of Studies, Sebastien Moranta, presented the conclusions of recent ESPI studies in the field of space security. The presentation provided an overview of the parallel routes adopted by Europe and the United States in this domain and showed how the current changing environment on each side of the Atlantic provides a window of opportunity to revisit and reinforce transatlantic relations for mutual benefits


In a rapidly evolving global context, the European space sector is faced with promising opportunities and new challenges and needs a well-thought and coordinated space policy. The high-level conference #EUSPACE for Business, organised under the auspices of the Austrian Presidency of of the Council of the European Union with the support of ESPI, brought together public and private stakeholders to discuss issues at stake and share their vision of Europe's future in space.


ESPI coordinator of studies, Sebastien Moranta, gave a keynote presentation on U.S. space policy and implications for Europe at the SIRIUS Space Talks 2018 conference organised in Toulouse by the SIRIUS Chair in collaboration with Space'ibles (CNES) on the theme “Space Economy: Urgent Need for New Global Regulation?”
