Brussels, 31 May 2006

The Commission gave a progress report on the development of the European Space Policy and road map. For the preparation of the European Space Policy and related Programme (ESP), a series of milestones have been foreseen in 2006 and 2007 in order to involve as far as possible the main actors in the space sector in Europe, including Member States. The main objective is to have an ESP adopted by the College of the Commission in the first quarter of 2007 and endorsed by a Space Council under the future German Presidency of the EU in the second quarter.
