Europlanet Global Collaboration and Integration Development Strategic Plan Published
Europlanet 2024 RI’s Global Collaboration and Integration Development activities aim to inspire and encourage planetary science and space technology advancement across borders and throughout the spectrum of academia, industry and civil society.
In making its distributed planetary research infrastructure available to more scientists and industrial partners worldwide, Europlanet 2024 RI will facilitate a more integrated and interconnected global planetary science community and stimulate the creation of opportunities with a wide impact on the environment, culture, socio-economic development and prosperity.
By midway though the project, Europlanet 2024 RI’s TA programme will be spread across three continents beyond Europe: Africa (Botswana and Ethiopia), Asia (China and South Korea) and America (Argentina).
In providing access to non-EU facilities and analogue sites and bringing together emerging countries and established spacefaring nations, Europlanet 2024 RI will provide an efficient platform for exchange and collaboration that will strengthen the position of the European planetary science community on the international landscape. The collaborations with Asia developed during the course of Europlanet 2024 RI will provide the basis for a sustainable TA programme in Europe and around the world.
Now, Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure has published a Strategic Plan for Global Collaboration and Integration Development.
The long-term goals at the root of the Strategy are to create the conditions for new scientific partnerships between EU and non-EU countries. Enhancing planetary science links between EU and non-EU countries will underpin growth in the scientific community and the free circulation of ideas. However, economic, political and social commitments within global partnerships will only succeed through sustainable development, equality in the allocation of available resources and the building of trust on both sides.
The strategy has five goals and sets out objectives and outcomes for each:
- Connecting the planetary science community
- Creating local Hubs for engagement
- Spreading the word at a global level
- Piloting sustainable Transnational Access
- Fostering innovation connections

The strategy has been conceived as an open document that can develop over the course of the Europlanet 2024 RI project.
