ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In August 2017, the European Space Agency issued a Call for Ideas for Research Opportunities on the Deep Space Gateway. Submissions received in response to this Call will be presented and discussed at a workshop to be held at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), ESA’s technical heart in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, on 5 and 6 December 2017.
The workshop will review submissions in the areas of life sciences, physical sciences, astronomy, Earth and Solar System sciences. It will also take on board education and public engagement initiatives.
This consultation will help ESA establish the major areas of research that could be enabled by the Deep Space Gateway. The end product will be a compendium of ideas, findings, and recommendations describing what will be required to enable the proposed science.
ESA will use this information to:
- Discuss the utilisation opportunities with international partners and stakeholders.
- Establish technical requirements for design and development.
- Guide future announcements of opportunity and research calls.
