The objectives of COSPAR Assemblies remain the same, namely "to promote on an international level scientific research in space, with emphasis on the exchange of results, information and opinions and to provide a forum, open to all scientists, for the discussion of problems that may affect scientific space research". The Science Program Committee (SPC) and the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for Athens 2022 remain dedicated to fulfilling these objectives and invite the world's scientific community to participate and submit abstracts to well over 350 sessions proposed so far. There will certainly be no shortage of new scientific findings in the subject areas of COSPAR's eight Commissions and eleven Panels, so the 44th Scientific Assembly will be exciting and rewarding.

The EU funded initiative FUTPRINT50 kicked-off in January 2020 and runs until December 2022 with the aim to accelerate technologies required for the entry-into-service of a commercial hybrid-electric aircraft in a class of up to 50 seats by 2035/40.
At global level aviation is challenging the mitigation of the sector's impact on the environment. The aviation community has realized that a change is required and therefore adopted the ambition to have a climate neutral aviation system by 2050 (FlightPath2050).
