Preliminary Euro Space Policy

With the new European space policy in the works, this week the European Commission released a fairly comprehensive outline entitled, European Space Policy – Preliminary Elements (dated May 23, 2005).

Europe's priorities are Galileo, of course, and GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). Also, long term research into satellite communications technologies, space exploration, and "the basic tools on which exploitation and exploration of space depend: access to space, scientific knowledge and space technologies."

The Commission
says "full space policy and space programme will be presented to Member States at the following Space Council meeting anticipated at the end of November 2005."
