R&D in Space: A New Frontier for Innovation

February 04, 2018

The potential of the ISS for R&D was expanded in 2011 when the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), a non-profit, non-government organization, was selected as the manager of the research facility, with a focus on enabling a new era of space research to improve life on Earth. This change brought significantly more interest from researchers across academia and industry to the ISS National Laboratory, explained Michael Roberts, PhD, Deputy Chief Scientist, CASIS.
