As part of the ESA Convention Commentary Project it has been possible for the Institute of Air Law, Space Law and Cyber Law to initiate the archiving of ESA documents. From the financial means of the project, two research trips to the ESA archives were organized. One to Historic Archives of the European Union, where historic documents surrounding the establishment of ESA are archived and the second to the ESRIN Archives where all the ESA documents older than fifteen years are kept. The documents are grouped according to the topics and can be accessed on the Computer in the Institute's Library.
In preparation of the documents being archived each individual document will be listed with its title, topic and year in order to make subsequent content searches easier. In future, an online catalogue will be made available here.
