BeST has contributed to the call for evidence launched by the European Commission on the development of an EU Space Strategy for Security and Defence.
BeST's contribution addresses two main points:
Access and supply to raw materials
Competing applications and sectors
BeST encourages EU policymakers to coordinate and develop regulatory and non-regulatory frameworks able to secure the raw materials necessary for all relevant industrial sectors, including the space sector, to allow the EU to remain competitive at international level and maintain as well as improve EU security and defence.
