European Union Agency for the Space Programme

The European Union Agency for the Space Programme is a proposed future agency of the European Union, based on the existing European GNSS Agency. The choice of name has been criticized by the European Space Agency for being too close to its own as well as encroaching on areas ESA believes to be its responsibility.[1].
