Objectives/scope of the committee

The Space Economy Committee will, in cooperation with other interested Committees, foster interest in the importance of building a more robust statistical knowledge-base of the space economy.

The Committee will:

  • Provide a forum to discuss and exchange views on definitions, measurement issues, impacts, and potential social benefits of the space economy.
  • Propose and (if approved) promote in coordination with the IAF secretariat workshops and seminars relating to measurement issues of the space economy.
  • Identify and invite representatives of organizations outside the space community to present and share lessons learned from other sectors, regarding value chains and societal impact assessments.
  • Assess and regularly report on the current international statistical knowledge-base of the space economy.
  • Promote guidelines to encourage the development of internationally comparable economic data series over time.
