The EESC has been always involved in space issues and adopted many opinions in this field. In 2014 the Committee decided to organise an initiative on space to identify the most suitable means to achieve the priorities he has set out in its opinions.
The project Space & Society, composed by six EESC members and supported by ten external partners, focused on six different topics. In the first half of 2015, six different events were organised in six EU countries and the final conference held at the EESC's Brussels headquarters in June 2015 summarised the work carried out and identified ways of continuing the experience. The main conclusions and recommendations of the Space & Society project are summarized in this document, alongside with the reports from the different local events.
