In Lebanon, the National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS-L) is the public institution in charge of science-policy making.
Given the benefit scale of space-related applications, the CNRS-L will leverage CubeSat technology toward sustainable development.
We will do this by supporting the research and education in Lebanon in the space field as well as providing opportunities for space technology transfer to the Lebanese scientific and professional communities.
Under the Technical Assistance Facility program to the Government of Lebanon, the CNRS-L is working in partnership with Crown Agents and OMSAR to launch Lebanon’s First National CubeSat Technology project.
The project officially entitled: “CubeSat Technology: Towards Developing the First Lebanese Nanosatellite” is funded by the European Union.
A national workshop will kick off the project in the First half of 2019.
