FP7 Space Conference
Posted on January 16, 2013
The second FP7 Space Conference that took place in Larnaca on 15-16 November 2012 gathered around 200 participants - space experts, researchers and industry stakeholders, personalities from European and international space science and research organisations, coordinators and members of FP7 funded research projects, representatives of national space administrations and space agencies, as well as high level EC and ESA officials.
The conference aimed at enhancing awareness of FP7 space results amongst policy makers, scientists and journalists and at strengthening international cooperation. It explored such topics as: space research to monitor environment and climate; space research for sustainable economic growth; space research at the service of citizens; exploration of the universe and the solar system; comprehension of solar-earth interactions; development of new space technologies; human habitats in space; future direction of European space research; and - last but not least - international cooperation in space endeavours.
The recently published book “Let’s embrace space” contains around 50 projects, amongst them EUFODOS, from the 3rd call of the FP7 SPACE research program.
