  Short description
Our target is the development of a scientific-technologic collaborative Competence Centre addressing to a particular technological niche in the larger field of countermeasures for Human Space Flight: astronauts' assessment, training and recovery for and after long exposure to MICE (Micro-gravity, Isolated and Confined Environment) through information-feedback, assisted, neuro-muscular control and mental-control assessment and training.
  The Goal
Contributing to the development of the capacity of participation of the Romanian scientific, technologic and industrial community in ESA Programmes and stimulating the transfer of the space research activity in the social and economic benefit.
  The Mission
The integration of existing scientific and industrial competences and achievements in countermeasures for Human Space Flight and complementary fields at national level, the valorisation in international context, notably through participation in ESA Programmes, and fostering the progress of the scientific and industrial Romanian space community.
  The Objectives:
1. The development of the national scientific and technologic capacity to participate in human spaceflight related activities by targeting:
- Methods and devices for countermeasures to MICE physiological impairments (cardio-vascular decompensation, calcium lost, muscle volume and force lost) as well as mental-volitional impairments (cognitive, psychological, psycho-social, fast and adequate response);
- Methods and devices for increasing mental resistance to prolonged reclusion, through specific mental control training (mental flexibility, cognitive-comportment control);
- Elucidation of processes and deepening the understanding of information role in neuro-muscular control and mental control training (in benefit of countermeasures and societal spin-off).

2. The entrainment and mentoring of the industry to participate in ESA activities:
- Stimulating the industry to comply space-grade technology;
- Stimulating the industry by creating technological and services terrestrial spin-offs emerging from the countermeasures oriented activities (age-related diseases and impairments, resistance to physiologic and mental stress of professionals exposed to intentional risks related to extreme conditions, motility recovery and increased societal inclusion for disabled persons and trauma victims).

3.Promotion of all level interdisciplinary education and public awareness in the specific field through:
- Continuous professional education (for specific-oriented college students and specific-oriented professionals through Bachelor-of-Science degree and PhD degree support);
- General education and public awareness level through Outreach activities (for high school students, non-specific college students and general public).

4. Dissemination of results in scientific Publications, Conferences, Workshops and Seminaries (for professionally interested, scientific and technical community).

5. The establishment of cooperation with similar entities in Europe and in the World.
