Work Programme 2010, Cooperation, Theme 9: Space (European Commission C(2009) 5893 of 29 July 2009)

Funded under: FP7-SPACE


The objective of the FP7 space work programme is to support a European Space Policy focusing on applications such as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), with benefits for citizens, but also other space foundation areas for the competitiveness of the European space industry. This will contribute to fulfil the overall objectives of the European Space Policy, complementing efforts of Member States and of other key players, including the European Space Agency.
Europe has been active in the space sector for several decades, and activities encompass a wide spectrum ranging from launchers to application satellites. Space activities, through scientific research and especially through their direct applications, are acknowledged as strategic for their contribution to the construction of Europe and the competitiveness of the European Union.
