Heads of Agencies

Time: 14:40-15:30 CEST

The IAF this year again is organising its flagship plenary with the leaders of the world major space agencies. Participating Heads of Agencies will present and discuss how their respective agencies are reacting to a changing space environment and will take stock of the past year's accomplishments. The event will be divided into 2 main sections. In the first part, the Heads of Agencies will be presented with a series of questions by the moderators, engaging them into a lively discussion. The Plenary will conclude with an interactive session with the audience.
