ESPI staff contributed to the United Nations / Austria World Space Forum titled 'Access to Space4All', which took place in Vienna between 18 and 22 November 2019. The World Space Forum is a series of annual events organised by UNOOSA with hosting countries. It consists in informal high-level gatherings of public and private space stakeholders meant to deliver messages and recommendations for the consideration of COPUOS delegations.

During the closing day of the Forum ESPI Director Jean-Jacques Tortora delivered a keynote on Space Diplomacy. In previous days ESPI Research Fellow Annalisa Donati presented ESPI's Space Venture Europe report series providing unique figures on the value of private investments in European space start-ups and ESPI Coordinator of Studies Sebastien Moranta moderated the panel on Space and Society.
