ESPI Resident Fellow Martin Sarret took part in the review of the 2018 Space Security Index in Montreal, Canada, which is a collaborative research effort between the Project Ploughshares, the Simons Foundation, McGill University Institute of Air and Space Law, the Research Unit for Military Law and Ethics of the University of Adelaide, the Space Policy Institute of George Washington University, and the School of Law of Xi’ian Jiatong University. 


It is with deep sadness that we were informed that Per Tegner passed away last week. 

Beside all his major contributions to the fostering of the European space sector, he has been a strong and permanent support to ESPI, actively participating until last month in our Advisory Council.

But above all, we lost a friend and we will cherish his remembering.

Our Mission Statement

"The European Space Policy Institute provides decision-makers with an informed view on mid to long-term issues relevant to Europe’s space activities. In this context, ESPI acts as an independent platform for developing positions and strategies."
