The conference was awarded with patronage of the Polish Space Agency and the Committee for Space and Satellite Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The seminar will be an excellent opportunity to meet members of the Manfred Lachs Polish Center for Space Law, in which UW is the leading unit.
The conference topics are addressed to a wide audience: researchers, lecturers, doctoral students, students, space entrepreneurs, and public administration employees. Space law events held at the UW bring together about 100 representatives of the space community in Poland.
