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