ECSL Practitioners’ Forum: Cyber Issues in Space – Legal Tools
Friday, March 23 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm20$ - 40$
The European Centre for Space Law (ECSL), was established under the auspices of the European Space Agency (ESA) in 1989, with a mandate to promote awareness, knowledge and the development of the legal framework relevant to space activities.
The ECSL has been organising a one-day Practitioners’ Forum every year since 1992. The aim of the Forum is to provide those working across all areas of the space sector an opportunity to network and discuss topical areas of space law and policy relevant to the sector.
The 2018 Practitioners’ Forum will address Cyber Issues in Space – Legal Tools, and take place at ESA HQ- Mario-Nikis, in Paris on the 23rd of March. The event will be opened by the ESA Director General and feature expert speakers working in academia, industry and Intergovernmental organisations.
During the Forum, the experts will present the latest developments impacting on space operations, followed by a Q&A and discussion session. The Forum promotes an open and free discourse. Participants speak in their personal capacity under the Chatham House Rules (no publication of comments made which enable their maker to be identified) and in general, papers are not collected or published.
The only fee for attending the forum is the annual membership fee for becoming a member of the ECSL (40€ for professionals and 20€ for students). The following day, on the 24th of March, the ECSL will also organise a Young Lawyers’ Symposium at ESA HQ. Read more about both events on www.esa.int/ecsl
