Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation (CSEO)

Association and Professional SocietyMember since 2016

The Cyprus Space Exploration Organisation (CSEO) is a non-profit organisation of public benefit, promoting and advancing space exploration and astronomy in Cyprus and around the world.

It was founded in 2012, with the goal of “Launching Cyprus into the Space Era” and building the next generation of scientists, that would see Cyprus as a niche player in global space exploration initiatives, and would build an international collaboration with other space-faring nations in scientific, space and planetary missions. CSEO’s International Council comprises some of the world’s most distinguished individuals that are highly decorated for their contribution to space exploration and astronomy.

CSEO’s foresight includes the establishment of an International Space Centre in Cyprus, space sciences and exploration, R&D, incubators, observatory, space discovery missions, earth observation, and collaboration with other international space entities.

Today, CSEO has multiple international awards in space innovation, and a thriving ecosystem of over 75 corporate members, a global network of space ambassadors via “CSEO International”, and over 700 registered researchers, scientists, and educators.

CSEO is internationally institutionalized and/or represents in Cyprus:

  • The International Astronomical Union (IAU)

  • The International Committee on Space Research (COSPAR)

  • The International Astronautical Federation (IAF)

  • The Copernicus Academy Network of EU Commission, as a Founding Member

  • The Moon Village Association (MVA)

CSEO based in Cyprus, presents a meeting point between space fairing nations, a steppingstone where space for peaceful purposes, employing technology and commerce can grow and mature.

CSEO’s motto is- Non lucror, Exposita Scientia, ad Astra- “Not for money, for discovering knowledge, approaching the heavens.”
