Companies and the Challenges of New Space: The Role of the European Space Agency
On the 8th February, Institut Montaigne hosted an event with Josef Aschbacher, the director general of the European Space Agency, in discussion with Arthur Sauzay, lawyer at Allen & Overy and contributor to questions of space for Institut Montaigne.
Since the Space Race, space has captured the attention of states through its seemingly endless opportunities and appeal. Moving through the 21st Century however, space has become an increasingly important arena for technological advancements and demonstrations of soft power by states and other actors. Offering a behind the scenes view of the European Space Agency, Josef Aschbacher reflected on the future of space in Europe in his discussion with Institut Montaigne.
