The Space Law Research Center (SPARC) is the first and currently only research group on space law in Portugal.

Created in 2018 within CEDIS, the research institute of NOVA School of Law, its purpose is to research and promote awareness of topics related to space law. Particularly, it has a goal to further develop a space law community in Portugal and to write in Portuguese on space law matters, since that is something that is currently lacking in the Portuguese-speaking academia.
