Space is an enabler for growth and innovation, the results and applications deriving from its use, have macro and micro benefits worldwide. It is spanning so many areas that it is difficult to find the one single value for space and while most of the space community is aware of the benefits generated, it might be less obvious to the general public. A public value approach to an assessment of an organisation raises new questions about its performance and brings voice and values, of the public into the policy process. Hence, this collaborative research project under the auspices of ESA LAB at UCLan sought to provide a comprehensive analysis and framework for the measurement of wider perceived public value of space agencies likes the European Space Agency (ESA).
