Created in 1988, the Italian Space Agency (ASI) is a national public body having the task of preparing and implementing the Italian space policy in accordance with the Government directives set by the “Interministerial Committee for Space and Aerospace Policies” (COMINT).
ASI is supervised by the Ministry of University and Research. Italian Space Agency is recognized as one of the most important global stakeholders on the scene of space science, satellite technologies and development of means to reach and explore the universe. Today the Italian Space Agency plays a leading role both at a European level, where Italy is the third major contributor to the European Space Agency (ESA), and at a global level with many international partners.
Just to mention one, it has a long-standing relationship with NASA, which has led ASI to take part in some of the most interesting scientific missions in recent years. One of the most fascinating international projects was the Italian contribution to the construction and design of the modules of the International Space Station.
