The Council of the Space Research Committee (COSPAR) has selected Athens to host the 44th COSPAR Scientific Assembly – also known as “Space Olympics”. The scientific assembly is scheduled to take place in the Greek capital from 16 to 24 July 2022.
The other candidate cities for the 2022 “Space Olympics” were Lausanne, Warsaw, and Prague. Athens was chosen at the 42nd COSPAR Assembly in Pasadena, California, where more than 3,300 space scientists from around the world had gathered.
COSPAR’s international assembly is hosted, on a different continent, every two years. The 2022 assembly in Athens is expected to draw about 4,000 scientists from research centers and universities from around the world, as well as delegates of major international space agencies.
Greece’s candidacy for the 44th COSPAR Scientific Assembly was prepared by the Space Research and Technology Bureau of the Academy of Athens and was actively supported by the City of Athens, the Ministries of Tourism and of Digital Policy, all the Universities and Research Institutions in the country, private and public entities, and Greek scientists from across the globe.
