SPARC aims to develop R&D activities on Space Law and related areas with a interdisciplinary approach, bringing together professors, researchers and Ph.D. candidates with projects and experience in these matters.

SPARC has currently the following on-going research projects:

  • Militarization and Peaceful Use of Outer Space
  • Relationship between Space Law and other areas of law (eg., PIL, Data Protection, Cybersecurity, etc.)
  • Relevant Aspects for the Space Industry (eg., export control, procurement, IP, etc.)
  • National Space Legislation (comparative study)

(More information regarding the research projects will be available soon)

Each research project is headed by a member of SPARC which is responsible for ensuring its development and outputs of the members and collaborators that are part of it.
