Space Resources Initiative
Ministère de l’Économie – Direction générale Recherche, propriété intellectuelle et nouvelles technologies
Luxembourg is supporting the long-term economic development of new, innovative activities in the space and satellite industries as a key high-tech sector for Luxembourg. While at first the aim is to carry out research in this area, at a later stage it can lead to more concrete activities in space.
The Luxembourg Government announced a series of measures to position Luxembourg as a European hub in the exploration and use of space resources. Amongst the key steps undertaken, as part of the SpaceResources.lu initiative, will be the development of a legal and regulatory framework confirming certainty about the future ownership of minerals extracted in space from Near Earth Objects (NEO’s) such as asteroids.
