EUSPA: Starting strong

The European Union Agency for the Space Programme, EUSPA, was launched on 12 May marking the start of a new era for EU Space.

Building on the legacy of the European GNSS Agency, EUSPA will take on responsibilities to create even more opportunities from Space for EU citizens and its economy.

Adoption of the Regulation establishing the new EU Space Programme on 27 April marks a new beginning for the EU Space Programme and for the European GNSS Agency (GSA), which has now officially evolved into EUSPA, with an expanded mandate and new responsibilities.

Under the new Space Regulation, EUSPA’s mandate will now include increased responsibilities in managing the exploitation of Galileo and EGNOS, including their service provision and operational security. Furthermore, the Agency’s new remit includes coordinating the user-related aspects of GOVSATCOM in close collaboration with the Member States and other involved entities.
