Consultation Paper for the National Space Strategy for Enterprise, 2019 – 2025

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation and Enterprise Ireland are developing a Space Strategy for Enterprise to support Ireland’s key strategic objective with respect to space: to develop a strong and sustainable space industry in Ireland and to optimise and grow the economic return from Ireland’s participation in European space programmes and in the expanding global commercial space market. The strategy will outline how Ireland can seize key opportunities and address crucial challenges within the evolving global commercial space market to achieve its key strategic objective.

The consultation process will help identify these opportunities and challenges, and importantly, it will help identify what actions Government and the Irish space industry could take to address them. The purpose of the consultation document is to seek input from a range of interested parties on issues to be considered in the development of this national Space Strategy for Enterprise. Respondents are asked to provide input, outlining what actions Government and Irish industry can take to build a strong and sustainable space industry in Ireland.

The closing date for submissions is 27 August 2018. Please complete submissions on the Consultation Response Form. Respondents are requested to send their completed forms by e-mail to
