The space programme aims to finance the European Union’s space policy. It involves bringing together existing infrastructures and services and introducing new features, such as: safeguarding the continuity and evolution of Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus; developing new security components (SSA and GOVSATCOM) to enable national authorities to access secure satellite communications and monitor space risks; promoting a strong and innovative space industry. On the new budgetary programming, the space programme aims to maintain the EU’s autonomous access to space and to unify and simplify the system of governance, for example by introducing a single regulation to allow simplified modes of cooperation between all actors.
