SESSION 2: FINANCIAL MODELS AND RESOURCING

Wednesday 24 April

Given the many competing social and economic priorities of emerging countries, the finances usually committed to national space programmes is generally sub-optimal. However, additional levels of funding are contingent upon demonstrating an appreciable value proposition through either a return on investment or value on investment. The Session focus will be on:

  1. Categorizing the financial models that could be adopted in national/regional space programs, and
  2. Pinpointing what development banks are looking for in providing financial loans and assistance for space technologies and applications.
