The European Space Sciences Committee​

Europe's Advisor on Space Science and Policy since 1974

The European Space Sciences Committee (ESSC) was established in 1974, as a means to give European space scientists an independent voice in the space arena. The ESSC provides unbiased, expert advice to the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Commission, EU national space agencies, and other decision-makers in the space domain. It has become the reference body in Europe for independent scientific advice on space matters and a focal point for international research collaboration.
