What is the IAF?

The International Astronautical Federation (IAF) is an international non-governmental and non-profit organization established in 1951.

The Federation encourages the advancement of knowledge about space and the development and application of space assets for the benefit of humanity. It plays an important role in disseminating information, and in providing a significant worldwide network of experts in the development and utilization of space.

what is the iac
What is the IAC

Every year since 1951, the Federation (IAF) together with its associates, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and the International Institute of Space Law (IISL), has organized the International Astronautical Congress (IAC).

The Congress constitutes the most well-known IAF activity and it is hosted by rotating member countries.

IAC encourages the advancement of knowledge about space. It is held in connection with a major space exhibition. Its intention is to enable representatives from the space industry, space users, space policy makers, students, young professionals, researchers and academicians to meet and exchange experiences and knowledge, and to develop worldwide cooperation programs.
