The President of the Riigikogu Ene Ergma is participating at the meeting of the Advisory Council of the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) in Vienna, discussing the application of developments in space research into everyday life.

“We are discussing how the developments in space research can best be applied to benefit our everyday life. There are also many companies in Estonia who can offer fresh, world-class solutions. They are valued partners in putting the achievements of space research into practice,” Ergma said.

The President of the Riigikogu will also meet the speaker of the Austrian parliament Barbara Prammer in Vienna. “For years, we have enjoyed an excellent cooperation between the speakers of EU national parliaments and I have always greatly enjoyed discussing current political issues with Mrs Barbara Prammer,” Ergma said.

ESPI is a research centre whose studies and analyses have greatly contributed to the development of the European strategic vision in the field of space. Ene Ergma, who is also the Chairman of the Riigikogu Space Research Support Group, is a member of the 10 member Advisory Council that serves the General Assembly of the ESPI.

Estonia is about to join the European Space Agency, which will give Estonian companies as well as research and development authorities the right to participate in the programmes and procurements of the Agency.
