CNES Program

The scientific community decides about the space program orientations every 4-5 years during the Scientific Prospective Conferences.

Each year, CNES asks the scientists to make their research proposals which must match with these programmatic orientations.

The scientits take also a part in different committees which evaluate the space missions: thematic groups, CERES, TOSCA, CPS.

Three themes involve Science:

  • Universe Sciences
  • Earth, Environment and Climate Sciences
  • Microgravity
