Space Green Paper – Prague meeting to highlight international co-operation
The last round of discussions on the Commission's Space Green Paper, before the wrap-up in Paris, is set to take place in Prague on 2 and 3 June 2003. The debate will centre on the 'international dimension' and will feature speakers representing traditional as well as newer space players. Opening the event will be Petra Buzkova, Czech Minister of Education, Youth and Sports. A provisional agenda is now available.
The Green Paper process comprises a series of seminars, workshops and hearings currently taking place throughout Europe. Its aim is to foster a wide-ranging debate among national and international organisations, the European space industry, the scientific community and the general public. An exchange that includes all of the relevant stakeholders will help to shape a comprehensive EU Space Policy, to be detailed in a White Paper later this year.
Individual contributions to the discussion can be posted via the dedicated On-line Forum.
