Tomasz Rożek has become a member of the High Level Advisory Group for Human and Robotic Space Exploration for Europe (HLAG)! He is the only representative of Poland and other countries in our region in this team.
An important cell for the European Space Agency
The Director General of the European Space Agency, Josef Asbacher, established the High Level Advisory Group on Human and Robotic Space Exploration (HLAG for short). It consists of 12 people, including: Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former Secretary General of NATO, Saadia Zahidi, Director of the World Economic Forum, Christoph Schweitzer, President of Boston Consulting, and Cristiana Garmendia, former Minister of Science and Innovation in the Spanish government.
Our task is to determine the direction in which Europe should develop space technologies.
This is how Dr. Tomasz Rożek, the only representative of Poland and other countries in our region in this team, explains his role.
Tomas Roczek will join the discussion on Europe’s role in space
During the last meeting of the European Space Agency member states in mid-February this year, it was decided to start a serious discussion of Europe’s role in human space exploration.
In order to develop an in-depth and objective vision, I decided to create the High Level Advisory Group for Human and Robotic Space Exploration for Europe – HLAG.
By Joseph Asbacher, Director General of the European Space Agency.
Josef Schbacher noted that the HLAG team will assess Europe’s future role in space exploration from different perspectives, including geopolitical, educational, economic and social aspects. He will be one of the advisory voices of Dr. Thomas Roczyk.
I deal with education and science communication, and I am happy to share my experience and intuition. I am very pleased that I have been selected to serve on the European Space Agency’s advisory group. The European Space Agency is one of the most important space exploration institutions in the world. The development of the space sector and the transfer of space technologies can (and in many places) be the driving force of modern economies. Poland has a rapidly developing space sector and I am glad that I will also be able to tell my colleagues from HLAG about this.
Tomasz Rożek says.
The first meeting will be held in September
Advisory Group meetings will be held in various ESA research centers, not only in Europe. The first meeting of the High Level Advisory Group on Human and Robotic Space Exploration for Europe (HLAG) is scheduled to take place at the end of September, at the ESTEC (European Space Agency’s European Space Science and Technology Center) in Nordwijk, the Netherlands.
