Aasemoon.blue » Lothlórien » Motivation Through Inspiration :: Lecture by Director General of the European Space AgencyThis was an absolutely inspiring lecture by the Director General of ESA, Dr. Johann-Dietrich Wörner. It was organised by ETH Zurich. Pictures are unfortunately bad quality ones taken by my tablet. Abstract: "ESA as THE European Space Agency is responsible for bringing together the intentions of 22 European Member States and Canada. This special position enables ESA to play the role of a facilitator for global cooperation projects. This lecture will cover concrete missions as well as political aspects of cooperation. Using real examples, the presentation will enable an understanding of how cooperation in a very diverse environment can work and what the restrictions are. In addition, the value of space activities for societal aspects will be highlighted. This includes technology transfer, spin in and spin off. Finally, the strategic way forward to attain projects in the future will be explained by using concrete visionary ideas."
