A
Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the Space Studies Board, working in collaboration with the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board, will organize a public workshop for the purpose of reviewing past and present cooperation and coordination mechanisms for space and Earth science research and space exploration, identifying significant lessons learned and discussing how those lessons could best be applied in the future. The workshop will utilize invited presentations, panel discussions and general discussions, both in plenary sessions and in subgroups.

Presentations and initial discussion will focus on past and present mechanisms to identify “Lessons Learned.” Those lessons learned then will be used as the starting point for subsequent discussions on the most effective ways in which future cooperation or coordination in space and Earth science research and space exploration could be structured. The goal of the workshop is not to develop a specific model for future cooperation/coordination but to explore the advantages and disadvantages of various approaches and stimulate further deliberation on this important topic.

An individually authored summary of the workshop will be prepared in accordance with institutional guidelines. The summary report will not contain findings or recommendations.
