ESA-Eurospace Space Exploration Technologies Workshop
13 April 2012, ESTEC, the Netherlands
Background and scope
In the frame of the preparation of the upcoming ESA Council at Ministerial Level, a coordinated European plan in the field of Technologies for Space Exploration is being prepared by ESA, supported by the compilation of (long-term) technology roadmaps. These roadmaps are intended to present all the technologies useful for space exploration programmes and missions and to pave the way for the creation of necessary European Operational Capabilities for future space exploration activities.
The draft technology roadmaps currently prepared by ESA will be presented in this workshop to industry and other European stakeholders to collect reactions and feedbacks on the elements proposed. The overall procurement approach will also be presented at the workshop.
Those having registered for the workshop will receive the draft roadmaps an estimated two weeks in advance so that they have time to analyse them and prepare their comments.
