Developments in space policies, programmes and technologies throughout the world and in Europe

  • Spyros Pagkratis
Part of the Yearbook on Space Policy book series (YEARSPACE)

Abstract

All major space policy developments worldwide were presented in the previous section of part one, in an attempt to clarify the principal space faring nations. strategies in 2009 and 2010. In the section bellow, there will be a biref discussion on developments in technology related areas, including access to space technologies and policies. The aim of this section is to clarify how the strategies already presented above interact with and influence specific space programmes and related research and development projects.
