Space Law

Governance & Liability 

The increasing number of space actors challenge traditional concepts behind the regulation of space activities. AI satellites operating with little human control are a growing trend in space exploration. Who will be responsible for the damages caused by a collision between two space objects equipped with advanced autonomous capabilities?

Sustainable Development Goals 
United Nations

How AI can help achieving the SDGs? Is AI capable to offer solutions for fighting climate change? Is AI capable to improve the lives of individuals affected by mental health diseases?

Governance & Liability
