    Title

    30th IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Round Table: Universities as Actors in Space

    Description

    Over the past years universities in all regions of the world have become a new player in space activities. They get involved in various ways, the most prominent one being cubesat missions, but also experiments on the ISS or other missions are cost-effective and less complex means to gain access to space. Cubesats and the opportunity of secondary payloads also allow new cooperation between academia and industry, fostering spin-off effetcs and triggering innovation. University space projects often enjoy a higher participation of women, thus allowing an early engagement with the space industry, which may trigger future career changes. However, questions related to technical issues such as standardisation, legal boundary conditions and operation of cubesats and secondary paylods often are difficult to answer yet. And still, flight opportunities remain limited and operation via foreign ground stations is not always easy. Generally, there is potential to enlarge and enhance the involbement of universities in space activities. Issues, but also benefits for education, industry and agencies should be identified and debated. The 2015 IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Roundtable is to address those questions, thereby allowing an interdisciplinary perspective.
