The majority of European Union citizens (63%) regard European space activities as important from the perspective of the EU’s future global role

When asked about the importance of developing various space-based applications for Europe, EU respondents were most keen on (further) developing environmental/natural monitoring systems: 58% found this very important. Regarding other services the mood remained generally positive; the proportion considering these very important remains in the one-quarter to one-third range (satellite-based communications, positioning system and satellite-based monitoring to improve citizens’ security)
