COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS - FEUILLET “HELLENIC SPACE AGENCY”
Πέμπτη, 29 Νοεμβρίου 2018

The Hellenic Space Agency was founded in March 2018 on the initiative of the Ministry of Digital Policy, Telecommunications and Media, the result of many years of Greek participation in various space activities, programmes and initiatives. In 2003 the first Greek telecommunications satellite was launched and in 2005 Greece became a full member of the European Space Agency (ESA). In 2009, the Hellenic Association of Space Industry was founded, with 41 member-companies employing 2000 scientists, while today, Greece is actively involved in all the international organisations relating to space, thereby supporting the Greek space industry and academic bodies concerned with space research.

Through new and existing space programmes and collaborations, the Hellenic Space Agency aims to ensure that all the necessary conditions exist for the country to strengthen its national security, benefitting from the greatest possible return on its investment in the space sector. The Hellenic Space Agency’s vision rests on the key principle that Greece’s citizens should have fast and unhindered access to the services and capabilities offered in the field of space at a national, European and global level.
