Recommendations of the U3 Bucharest Information, Education, Cooperation: 

Recommendations of the U3 Bucharest Information, Education, Cooperation The Conference recognizes the importance of science and technology as a tool for socio-economic development in the region as the next century approaches. Rapid advances in space science and technology will continue and the countries of the region must make every effort to take part in this human endeavour, so that the attendant benefits can enhance the quality of life in the region. Research, education and training are the cornerstones for furthering knowledge and are part of the overall capacity-building process. The Conference declares that the access to information and education are key issues for effective participation in space activities at the present moment in time Information infrastructure is an essential tool for development, which can be utilized in areas such as monitoring events, research and applications, education and training and decision-making; and space technology as a crucial tool for gathering information and for communicating rapidly and efficiently over wide and remote areas The core institutions of the Network should develop a satellite communications and information infrastructure, including appropriate terminals located in each country at the core institution, for distance learning and the on-line exchange of information of regional interest.
