Socio-economic benefits of European space exploration and its contributions to sustainable development world-wide
Currently Internal Research Fellow, based in the Strategy and Innovation Team, Directorate of Human and Robotic Exploration Programmes, at European Space Agency/European Space Research and Technology Centre, ESA/ESTEC.
The Team supports the development, evolution and implementation of ESA’s Global Exploration Strategy and manages the benefits from ESA’s space exploration activities. This includes supporting international activities, including the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG), and the development of new partnerships and governance schemes. The Team also works to implement new innovation partnerships with commercial space and non-space sectors for activities related to exploration of the Moon, Mars and low Earth orbit, while seeking to increase commercial and industrial utilisation of the International Space Station. The Team leads a number of activities to prepare future exploration missions and technologies, working closely with the space science community. These include technology developments and mission studies, coordinated at international level and leveraging commercial partnerships.
Working on the development of a systematic approach for defining, delivering and monitoring expected benefits from the European space exploration on society at large. These benefits address the scientific, economic, political and public dimension of space exploration.
