PSSI’s Space Security Conference series, launched in 2011, has become a leading high-level trilateral (i.e. Europe, U.S., and Japan) space security gathering. Five such international conferences have been convened to date, involving leading space policy-makers, senior military and civil government officials, industry leaders, and distinguished NGO and academia representatives, from Europe, the U.S., and Japan. Previous PSSI Space Security Conferences were held in Prague (in 2011, 2016, and 2019), Tokyo (in 2013), and Washington, DC (in 2017). The key partnering organizations have included the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the Japanese Prime Minister’s Office of National Space Policy, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), Japan’s Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Center (CSICE), and the Secure World Foundation (SWF). More information about the past events is available here.

PSSI’s Space Security Conference will be held on 19—21, 2022 in Prague. We believe that industry participation in, and contribution to, this high-level gathering will provide an essential perspective to these proceedings. We would like to invite your company to be part of this world-class event and help move what we call E&F space — or the economic and financial dimensions of space — into mainstream space security decision-making.
The past conferences have been attended by some 200 senior-level civil and military government officials, industry representatives, as well as non-governmental experts. The event is planned to be held at the Czernin Palace (the seat of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs) under the auspices of the Czech Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Transport, and Defence.
