Following the call for submission of research proposals under the 2nd cycle of the co-funded by EU funds and the National Strategic Reference Framework programme in support of young researchers and the Ministry of Development and Investments’ decision published on 24 June 2019, the research project “Space Law in the age of Artificial Intelligence: challenges and dilemmas” was listed among the approved for funding projects and is being conducted under the auspices of the Athens Public International Law Center, the academic supervision of Professors Photini Pazartzis and Georgios Kyriakopoulos, and the participation of Anthi Koskina [Postdoctoral researcher] and Crystalie Bourcha [PhD candidate].

The project seeks to address the interplay between the boundaries of space law regime and the implications introduced by the use and application of AI and relevant new technologies in relation to space exploration and adjacent activities. This interplay will be benchmarked against existing regulatory standards and put under interdisciplinary test for the purposes of delimitating the particularities of the use of emerging technologies in relation to space activities, as well as for exploring the pertinent concepts of exploitation and ownership of deduced scientific data. The project will span over a 15 month period, while the main research outcomes will be published in a research paper and presented at an international conference venue.
