Symposium Keynote: European Space Agency Director Johann-Dietrich Wörner

Originally aired on: February 17, 2021

Dr. Wörner’s tenure as Director General of ESA saw a number of achievements, to include securing a record budget at the Space 19+ summit in Seville, Spain, in November 2019, a renaissance in Europe’s space industry due in large part to Dr. Wörner’s insistence that the private sector – especially small and medium-sized enterprises – play a larger part in Europe’s space ambitions, and several bureaucratic reforms within ESA that strengthens its governance and accountability.  He will conclude his term end of February 2021. The newest leaders of ESA attended the 2023 Space Symposium.
