Denmark increases ESA contribution

Denmark is to pay out 313 million Danish kroner (€42m) towards the European Space Agency’s voluntary programmes, which is an increase of kr56m from 2012.

The 20 ESA member states decided at a meeting, held in Luxemburg on 2 December, to commit altogether €5.9 billion towards voluntary programmes such as launchers and space exploration programmes.

Denmark is to continue its participation in funding the International Space Station, as well as the telecommunications programme Artes and the technology programme GSTP. In addition, Denmark will contribute to ESA’s programme on developing Sentinel-satellites, under the EU’s climate and environment monitoring initiative Copernicus.
