European Space Policy
The main aim of the EU’s space policy is to use space-related technology to tackle some of the most pressing challenges today, such as fighting climate change, helping to stimulate technological innovation, and providing socio-economic benefits to citizens.
The space industry contributes to the objectives of the EU's Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth. It drives scientific progress and boosts growth and employment in other areas such as telecommunications, navigation, and Earth observation.

They also provide us with strategically important knowledge that underpins the EU’s external relations in areas such as development assistance and humanitarian aid.
