Joint Oversight Group - JOG


The JOG, Joint Oversight Group, composed by representatives from both nations, and held by both NASA and C3P simultaneously, must mandatorily meet at least once a year. As defined in the statutes, during this JOG Meeting, C3P summarizes the activities undergone during the past year, and NASA/ C3P discuss future activities and short, medium, and long-term programs to be developed.

The JOG meeting was held on November 18, 2011 at the European Space Agency (ESA)'s Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.

The Heads of the Delegations welcomed all in attendance for the 9th annual JOG meeting.

Highlights of discussions: Additional committees were formed for the Permanent Bilateral Commission; C3P-NASA Workshop Students Program chose 6 Portuguese students to participate in the workshop.  Funding for all 6 students was graciously provided by the Luso-American Foundation for Development (FLAD); and the SAA/ECOS Network projects are progressing very well and have been very successful in their objectives.
