In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Dr. Marco Ferrazzani, Chief of Legal services at the European Space Agency, Paris, France talked about legal considerations on Europe in space.

We discussed the following topics of current interest in European space:

  • the current state of legal competences in the European landscape ,
  • ESA for the EU space programme – institutional cooperation and coordination, with an outlook on the FFPA negotiations,
  • an ever more competitive European space industry – how law and regulations sustain innovation and foster competition,
  • European exploration: how ESA and NASA team up on the way “Forward to the Moon”, sustained by law and international commitments.

Dr. Marco Ferrazzani also answered relevant questions from the audience.

This Space Cafè WebTalk, held on 02 February 2021, was hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global
