Jean-Jacques Dordain joins ISPL Advisory Board
The Institute is delighted to welcome Jean-Jacques Dordain to our Advisory Board. He will join five other distinguished individuals whose role includes advising on ISPL’s focus, areas of concentration and direction. They are essential to the functioning of the Institute, along with our Faculty and many others who contribute to our activities.
Jean-Jacques served with great distinction as the Director-General of ESA, the European Space Agency, from 2003 to 2015. During his tenure at ESA, Mr Dordain has nurtured ESA’s relationship with the European Union and its institutions. He presided over a long string of successful Ariane launches carrying important space science missions, as well as a number of key Earth Observation satellites put into orbit to provide unique data to the scientific communities for understanding and monitoring Earth’s environment and climate change.
Throughout his career Jean-Jacques has taught in several prestigious positions. His professional memberships and honours are numerous, as are his achievements in the aerospace field. His biography may be seen on the ESA website.
He brings knowledge, perspective and vast experience to the task. He is also Advisor to the CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall. ISPL’s Director Sa’id Mosteshar said, “It is an honour and a privilege to have Jean-Jacques’ tremendous insight and the benefit of his many talents to complement our outstanding Board of Advisers. His international stature and understanding of our field will be a great asset to the Institute.”
