The twenty-second Newsletter issue of the European Space Policy Research and Academic Network (ESPRAN) operated by ESPI is now online. This issue of the ESPRAN Newsletter provides an account of ESPI’s activities during the last year. The period was extremely productive for ESPI: it saw the publication of the tenth and eleventh volumes of the book series “Studies in Space Policy”, five ESPI Reports, as well as four ESPI Perspectives and the “Yearbook on Space Policy 2014 – The Governance of Space”. The period also saw a considerable number of activities in and outside ESPI, an account of which is provided within this Newsletter.
A description of the upcoming activities and events planned by ESPI as part of its Workplan 2016 is also provided. Finally, this Newsletter provides ESPRAN Members with a platform and relevant instruments to share their perspectives and plans. Within this issue, the activities and opportunities offered by the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) are presented.
