CAELUS FOUNDATION CO-HOSTS THE SINO-US SPACE COMMERCIALIZATION WORKSHOP: REDEFINING THE SINO-US SPACE COMMERCIALIZATION – PERSPECTIVE OF GLOBAL SPACE COMMUNITY

We co-hosted, along with our partners at the Chinese Society of Astronautics and the Secure World Foundation, a workshop to initiate a dialogue to improve shared understanding of US and Chinese commercialization of the space domain. We believe that a dialogue involving non-government, academic, and practitioner organizations is necessary to address the geopolitical and economic challenges that currently exist. Acknowledging the magnitude of these challenges, we have shaped a non-politically driven forum for exchanging views with the goal of educating, informing, and inspiring collaborative activity while maintaining each sovereign nation’s interest. The partners that hosted the workshop anticipated that this dialogue on economic affairs will continue beyond the conclusion of the event, which it has.

caelus foundation Launches its informal working dialogue series

Our founding team hosted our first event, where we launched our Informal Working Dialogue series with select participants during the 34th Space Symposium. We engaged a diverse, well-informed audience in dialogue about the current challenges and future principles for the development of the space domain. The primary insight that emerged was that it is difficult to coordinate development of the space domain globally when the world does not have a common set of definitions for important terms.  As a result of this event, we are now collaborating with one of our partners to conduct research on how terminology shapes decisions being made in the space domain.

Contact us to get a summary of this dialogue or to get involved in our Informal Working Dialogue series.
