Secretariat and other organs

The Secretariat of ECSECO is managed by the European Space Agency (ESA) with support from the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) and is hosted in the premises of the Institute in Vienna, Austria.

A General Meeting of members is convened every three years. At the General Meeting, the members examine the orientation of the Centre’s activities and questions related to the future of the Centre, and elect the members of the Board.

The Board oversees and assists in the running of the Centre, proposes themes for research and workshops, and takes other steps necessary to achieve the aims of the Centre.
