International Astronautical Federation (IAF)
Founded in 1951 to foster dialogue between scientists around the world and support international cooperation in all space-related activities, the IAF continues to connect space people worldwide.
The Federation is the world’s leading space advocacy body with over 366 members, including all key space agencies, companies, societies, associations and institutes across 68 countries.
Over 40 administrative and technical committees support the Federation in its mission to advance knowledge about space and to foster the development of space assets by facilitating global cooperation.
At its annual International Astronautical Congress (IAC) and other thematic conferences, the IAF brings its multidisciplinary and international network to life.
