On occasion of the 56th session of the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee of the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, the European Space Policy Institute is organizing two evening events, on Wednesday 13 and on Tuesday 19 February 2019.
Primarily envisioned as a non-proliferation instrument, the U.S. International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) aim to control the export of selected items as a mean to promote U.S. national security interests but also play an active role in U.S. economic diplomacy.
The year 2018 is reaching its end and I believe that the least we can say is that it has been quite a busy year for our Institute! The first point I would like to highlight is the new record high achieved this year regarding the number of publications. Those include books published in collaboration with Springer, ESPI Public Reports or Executive Briefs made available for download from our website and more.
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. For this internship, residence in Vienna is not mandatory. Remote work would be a preferred option.
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.
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."
