STCU – National Space Agency of Ukraine Agree on Future Cooperation185/353
17 Jun 2009 - 30 Jun 2009
On 12 June 2009, the STCU and the National Space Agency of Ukraine (NSAU) signed a memorandum of understanding, outlining the directions of mutual cooperation between the two organizations for the future. Many ex-USSR delivery system experts (i.e., ballistic missile systems experts) work in institutes and organizations under the NSAU, and both STCU and NSAU sought to lay down a roadmap of partnership that would serve the interests of both. The memorandum calls for STCU and NSAU to develop joint sponsorship of conferences, publications, and other activities, and to agree on co-financing of such activities. By deepening the cooperative relations between the two entities, STCU and NSAU hope to open more opportunities to engage and redirect former ballistic missile experts, and other military aerospace scientists and technicians, towards peaceful, sustainable employment in the advancement of the STCU WMD nonproliferation mission as well as for the benefit of NSAU and Ukraine.
