Update 8 November: Video Replay now available.

On Monday, 7 November 2016 from 08:30 CET, I will provide an overview of the upcoming ESA Council at Ministerial level (ESACM16). It will take place in Lucerne, Switzerland, on 1 and 2 December 2016. Ministers in charge of space activities from the 22 ESA Member States and Canada will meet to decide on future space activities for Europe.

For those unable to attend – both from media and the public – please tweet your questions to @janwoerner, using the hashtags #ESACM16 and #askESA. As there is no webstream, my team and I will reply via Twitter in near real time. A video recording of the news briefing will be available online soon after the event.
