France seeks to "shake up" ESA, official says

 

The BBC (7/1, McGrath) reported, "The French take over the rotating presidency of the European Union on 1 July and are planning to make space policy a key area for reform." A "senior official involved in French space policy" speaking to the BBC stated that "it was time to shake up the European Space Agency (ESA) and make it more like the U.S. space agency," but Alan Cooper, "European space policy implementation manager with ESA" said, "If you want the European space program to have the same impact, it will need a higher profile and the investment to match those goals." The unnamed French official said, "People are very much attached to the Esa which we understand. But this attachment translates into keeping the status quo... we think that Europe now needs political support otherwise the Chinese or the Indians will overtake us."
