International Institute of Space Commerce
Member since: 2011
The International Institute of Space Commerce, or simply ‘the Institute’, has been established on the Isle of Man through a partnership between the International Space University (ISU) and the Manx Government.
The Institute’s mission is to become the leading think-tank in the study of the economics of space. It is intended to be the intellectual home for the Industry and Space Academia around the world for which it shall perform studies, evaluations and provide services to all interested parties with the ultimate aim to promote and enhance world’s space commerce to the general public.
The vision is for the Institute to act as a resource for all, being an international and non partisan ‘Think Tank’ drawing upon new ideas and solutions to existing and future problems the space industry faces by drawing together experts from academia, government, the media, business, international and non-governmental organisations, most notably those from the ISU and its extended network of people and resources. The aim of the Institute is to broaden the professional perspective and personal understanding of all those involved in the study, formulation, execution, and criticism of Space Commerce.
The Institute is a Not for Profit Foundation and has been located at the International Business School (IBS) on the Isle of Man to capitalize on the Isle of Man’s growing importance and position in the world’s space industry.
