EU space policy and its potential for EU industrial sector competitiveness

15-09-2008

This study prepared by TNO analyzes a part of European Space Policy and Programme under three main themes: space related applications and market players; benefits from the European Space Policy and Program; and governance aspects and policy implications. As instructed by study’s administrators, the report concentrates on two primary sectors of interest – Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), including Galileo, and Earth Observation, including the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security initiative (GMES). In addition, the report covers, albeit in fewer detail, access to space and European launcher programme and contains a general analysis of European Space Programme (including a view from international perspective).
