IAF secretariat team

The IAF Secretariat is a small but dynamic team based in Paris, France. We work hard every day with unwavering enthusiasm to ensure a smooth coordination and management of all IAF activities and events.

Among other tasks, we support the IAF member organisations, the IAF Technical and Administrative Committees, the Global Conferences and the annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC).
