COSPAR is the International Council for Scientific Unions (ICSU)’s affiliate working in cooperation with a few scientific organizations worldwide. Being part of its members, The Korean Academy of Science and Technology has joined the interdisciplinary scientific body. Nearly 9,000 scientists and representatives of 44 member countries are currently registered as members of the club. The city of Busan was selected as the finalist in Korea, a prime candidate for hosting the next round of conference, since the city has started to work for the candidacy in 2019. From then on, Busan city has got into its stride, forming a TF to produce video ads and promotional films to become the COSPAR host in 2025.
The 45th COSPAR is scheduled to be held on Jul 13-21, 2024 at Bexco, Busan city, under the theme of “Space Research with COSPAR” for nine days.
