The Yearbook on Space Policy is an annual publication of the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) providing an overview of major developments and trends in space policy, industry, programmes, economy and overall worldwide activity over the year.

New ESPI Yearbook edition

After 10 successful editions published by Springer, ESPI decided to update the editorial formula and publication policy of the Yearbook.
The 2019 edition is the first of the new ESPI Yearbook series and adopts a revised structure and content, organized in four complementary chapters:

  • Policy & Programmes: space policy highlights and trends, major space programme developments
  • Industry & Innovation: launcher and satellite industry developments, selected company infosheets
  • Economy & Business: global and European space economy indicators (turnover, budgets, investment)
  • Launches & Satellites: space activity statistics, mission highlights and ESPI launch log

ESPI Yearbook does not aim to be comprehensive but rather to provide useful information, data and insights on a selection of topics expected to shape the future of the global and European space sector.
