Nearly all of NASA's programs benefit from some level of international cooperation - we have nearly 800 active international agreements with 120 nations and these partnerships have grown in diversity and importance. NASA is now pursuing with international and commercial partners the next phase of robotic and human exploration beyond low-Earth orbit, including the return of Americans to the lunar surface. Ms. Karen Casper Feldstein will speak about not only the benefits to this NASA mission, but also the benefits to the United States more broadly.
Ms. Feldstein is responsible for supervision and management of NASA's interaction with Executive Branch offices and agencies, international relations for each of NASA's Mission directorates, administration of export control and international technology transfer programs, and support of NASA advisory councils and committees. Previously, she served as Director of the Science Division in NASA's Office of International and Interagency Relations (OIIR), coordinating activities in support of NASA's Science Mission Directorate and leading NASA's engagements and new partnerships in Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. Ms. Feldstein also served in Paris as the NASA European Representative, serving as NASA's representative to space-faring European nations, the European Space Agency, and other European institutions to facilitate NASA aeronautics and space objectives in Europe.
