Space Economy Insights episode 1 – What is Space Economy?
In this first pilot episode of Space Economy Insights, Kevin O’Connell and Emma Gatti interviewed Claire Jolly, Head of Ocean Economy & Space Economy, Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
Together, they discussed the real meaning of the concept of Space Economy. How do we measure what is part of the domain and what is not? Is this all a hype? And if not, how do we avoid turning it into one? And again, which are the most urgent and crucial sectors that need development in order to transform Space into a long-term sustainable and flourishing sector?
