Finnish National Committee on Space Research

Online report to COSPAR.

The committee on Space Research (COSPAR) was established by the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU) in 1958. The ICSU resolution creating COSPAR was to "provide the world scientific community with the means whereby it may exploit the possibilities of satellites and space probes of all kinds for scientific purposes, and exchange the resulting data on a cooperative basis."

The Finnish National Committee of COSPAR has participated in the international and national co-operation of scientific space research since 1964 by submitting proposals, issuing statements, arranging meetings, and keeping contact with the international COSPAR and its subcommittees.

The National Committee is an expert body nominated by the Delegation of the Finnish Academies of Science and Letters. The members of the National Committee represent the active community of space researchers in Finland. Chairman of the Finnish National Committee is Professor Minna Palmroth (since 2019).
