The seminar will discuss the rise of “emerging space programs” that represent a growing percentage of the global space sector. The speaker, Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty,currently an Erin J.C. Arsenault fellow at McGill University, working towards a PhD in Space Policy focused on ‘Space Benefits’ for Africa, will present Euroconsult’s latest research which explores how and under what frameworks emerging countries are investing in first-or-second-generation satellites.
