On 27th January 2021 Galileo Services General Assembly decided that the Association will evolve and change its name to SpaceY. The mandate of the Association is still to focus on satellite navigation, but now also to incorporate other elements of the EU Space Programme. The mission remains the same: to create value for Europe through the development of applications and the growth of the European downstream industry.
An important role of the Association is to stress the crucial message that the huge investments in space infrastructure must be based on real user needs, and on the tangible socio-economic benefits it will generate: This is whY Europe invests in Space, and the fundamental focus of SpaceY.
