With their contributions the work is organised in these 22 member-states, with directions like Scientific Projects (obligatory), Earth-observation, Telecommunication, Manned space activities, technical support to such directions and more. Collaborations with other space agencies take place as well. Extensive information is found on, with
good details about the topics presented.

Registration is mandatory for all participants in the gatehouse upon arrival. Take note, that it takes some time to park the car after registration and walk to the meeting point in the main building.
