EP Briefing 2004-04-19: European Space Policy - EU / ESA co-operation

April 15, 2004

Strasbourg, 14 Apr 2004

Guido BODRATO (EPP-ED, I) for the Industry Committee will be tabling a non-binding draft resolution on the Framework Agreement between the European Union and the European Space Agency which has been drawn-up based on the recommendations and conclusions of the Commission's Communication "Towards a European Space Policy". In this draft report the Commission notes that a successful development of a European Space Policy would be the establishment of a formal Framework Agreement. Such a framework would help define the principles and mechanisms of reinforced co-operation as well as boosting efficiency by avoiding any duplication of effort. The agreement is set to last for four years to be automatically extended for a subsequent period of four years unless written notification of any of the parties intending to terminate it.
