International futures programme

OECD Space Forum

 

More than 60 countries have satellites in orbit, and satellite signals and data play an increasingly pivotal role in the efficient functioning of societies and their economic development. In co-operation with the space community, the OECD Space Forum was established to assist governments, space-related agencies and the private sector to better identify the statistical contours of the space sector, while investigating space infrastructure’s economic significance, its role in innovation and potential impacts for the larger economy. This unique international platform contributes to constructive dialogue between stakeholders and exchanges of best practices.

Opening remarks by OECD Secretary-General William Danvers summarised the main findings. Highlights from the event were posted on Twitter: #OECDspace
