ISAS Space Science Colloquium & Space Science Seminar
CNES, its program and its transformation
CNES (the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales)
CNES, the French Space Agency was created 56 years ago in 1961 for two main purposes: to propose the Space French Policy to the French Government and to implement this policy and relative programmes in all fields of Space activities. Thus, from the very beginning CNES has developed two different and complementary roles: agency and technical centre. This is still the case but of course everything has evolved a lot from 1961. This evolution seems to accelerate now with what is called the "New Space".
After the presentation of CNES, its four centres, its budget, its programmes and the way to manage them, the presentation will focus on the evolutions needed for "historical" Space agencies and the way CNES decided to manage these changes in taking into account new applications of space data, in changing the positioning of the Agency in the overall French space ecosystem in order to better prepare the future, run our programmes and work differently with industry.
