Committee on Space Research (COSPAR)

Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) was established during an international meeting in London in 1958. COSPAR"s first Space Science Symposium was organized in Nice in January 1960.

COSPAR"s objectives are to promote on an international level scientific research in space, with emphasis on the exchange of results, information and opinions, and to provide a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect scientific space research. These objectives are achieved through the organization of Scientific Assemblies, publications and other means.
