My internship is taking place at the headquarters of OECD located in Paris.

I work in the Space Forum Team which belongs to the Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation. My mentor, Claire Jolly - Head of Space Forum/Ocean Economy Group, is a specialist in space economy and innovation policy. Claire is also an ISU MSS99 alumna!

My internship task is to do some research and write an analysis report about policy, innovation system and socio-economic impacts assessment on space activities in China. This report will contribute to an OECD ongoing program on “Space and Innovation”.”
