Space Science covers a broad range of activities: from the human and robotic exploration of a planet and the study of the history of the Universe, to the monitoring of Earth to understand the long-term effects of climate change and from the provision of global positioning information and a telecommunication system, to the many applications and spin-offs that bring space down to Earth.
ESA, the European Space Agency, works together with its 22 Member States at the forefront of space science, with the know-how and expertise of its scientists and engineers. Over more than 50 years of operations, ESA has acquired a vast technical, scientific and managerial knowledge in managing complex aerospace programmes (involving national space agencies, industry and academia), thus shaping the development of Europe’s space capability.
ESA’s collective knowledge is thus one of the major assets, if not the key asset, for the European space ecosystem, and it shall be duly identified and made accessible, correctly preserved, documented, exploited and shared. To do all that, since 2017, ESA has set in place a comprehensive KM initiative, initially to address ESA employees’ needs and challenges in terms of knowledge and information management. Our mission is to build a solid and sound KM system and make the Agency -and the whole European space ecosystem- stronger and ever more ready to address future space challenges.
