Space Technology Industry-Government-University Roundtable


Statement of Task

The Space Technology-Industry-Government-University Roundtable (STIGUR) of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convenes senior-most representatives from industry, universities, NASA, and other government agencies to define and explore critical issues related to NASA's space technology research agenda that are of shared Interest; to frame systems-level research issues; and to explore options for public-private partnerships. This forum is designed to facilitate candid dialogue among attendees to foster greater partnership among the NASA-related space technology community, and, where appropriate, carry awareness of consequences to the wider public.
