The European Space Sciences Committee was established in 1974, as a means to give European space scientists an independent voice in the space arena. The ESSC provides unbiased, expert advice to the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Commission, EU national space agencies, and other decision-makers in the space domain. It has become the reference body in Europe for independent scientific advice on space matters and a focal point for international research collaboration.

The ESSC members are drawn from reputed experts active in all fields of space research on the basis of scientific expertise and recognition within the community.

ESSC is able to provide its Funding Organisations with competent and unbiased advice on space research issues.
