Six areas of space activity are supporting societal needs, as defined by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including earth observation, communication, positioning, microgravity research, technology transfer, and fundamental research.

Hear how the Space Enabled Research Group works to increase the opportunities to design and apply space technology in support of the Sustainable Development Goals with societal leaders from around the world.
