Agencies participating in the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG) have continued to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities of implementing exploration missions as described in the Global Exploration Roadmap (GER). Seeking innovative solutions from the broader community, a series of engagement activities have been held in the US, Europe and Japan in 2014.

The latest stakeholder engagement opportunity took place on October 29-31, 2014, on occasion of the International Space Exploration Conference hosted at the International Space University (ISU) in Strasbourg, France. Participants presented their international space exploration activities, debated the technical, scientific and programmatic challenges associated to space exploration, and reviewed the implications of the GER during special plenary sessions and roundtables.
