12th ESPI Autumn Conference, 27-28 September 2018
Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes
The Autumn Conference is a yearly ESPI event where space policy, agency and industry stakeholders come together to discuss issues that affect Europe and the rest of the world.

The Topic 

Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes for Civilian Space Programmes (2018)

This year ESPI will organise its 12th Autumn Conference on the following topic:  “Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes for Civilian Space Programmes”. Drawing on the findings of a joint research collaboration with George Washington University´s Space Policy Institute, the event will discuss the ongoing reshaping of European and American approaches to Space Security issues. Greater emphasis will be put on the criticality of future short- and long-term policy developments in this area and how to reach the full potential of a transatlantic cooperative approach in this specific field.

The 12th Autumn Conference will be a two-day event and will cover the following three sessions:

  1. State of Play in Space Security Strategies: Space Assets in an Evolving Environment
  2. Forging Ahead with European Space Security Efforts
  3. Thinking Transatlantic Cooperation: Towards STM

The event was intentionally designed to have a forward-looking vision on Space Security strategies to be endorsed on both sides of the Atlantic through a careful selection of speakers active in the field, both in the public and private sectors.
