The 10th Annual International Space Station Research and Development Conference

The 10th annual International Space Station Research and Development Conference (ISSRDC) will feature a session on “The Next Decade of ISS Research.” The session will include representatives from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory, and NASA, as well as international collaborators, all of whom are instrumental in the evaluation of research priorities in space. The session will be moderated by Jeff Foust, senior science writer at Space News.

NASEM has already begun looking into the future of ISS research with the recent kickoff of their next Decadal Survey on Biological and Physical Sciences Research in Space for the years 2023-2032. During the ISSRDC session, panelists will discuss the impact of research and development conducted on the space station, future research endeavors, and the value that space-based science brings to humanity, both on and off our planet.

The virtual conference is FREE to attend, but registration is required. To learn more about this session and for additional information about ISSRDC 2021, visit
