Call for participants: OECD's initiative on the value and sustainability of space-based infrastructure [Mar/2021]
The OECD Space Forum is undertaking in 2021 a ground-breaking project to examine the value and sustainability of space-based infrastructure with 11 space agencies / administrations. To that end, OECD is inviting selected universities and research organisations to take part in this initiative, offering their students a great opportunity to join the international exercise. The call for participation is opened until March 31st 2021.
The aim of the exercise is to deliver an original research paper to be presented to the international community in November 2021, which will be published with the OECD. The Secretariat and other experts will guide the students along the way. OECD is therefore looking for involvement from students and academic staff in disciplines such as engineering, ICT, and economics, at Master, PhD or post-doc levels working by themselves or within small multi-disciplinary teams.
Starting from the same research questions, OECD is looking for students and young researchers to study and provide their original ideas on the following topics:
- the economic valuation of the space infrastructure
the valuation of the socio-economic impacts of space debris incidents
New participants (individuals or small teams) can get more details by contacting the OECD Secretariat by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to formally join the project, participants are asked to:
1) Mention in a couple of sentences what is their motivation in participating
2) Describe how the project may link with their ongoing research/studies (and if they are supported by lecturers/professors)
3) Send a CV (for each participant).
