Head of Nation Igor Ashurbeili met in London with Head of Parliament Lembit Öpik and Head of Government Ana Mercedes Diaz. They discussed preparations to the next digital Parliamentary Session and First Asgardia Executive Congress
The Congress, for the first time in Asgardia’s history, will bring together representatives of all of its government bodies. Asgardian leaders will hear joint reports of committees and ministers on 12 general lines of the Space State’s development, like science, culture, international relations, etc.
Minister of science Floris Wuyts is confident that one of Asgardia’s main tasks is to support scientific research all over the world.
Floris Wuyts, Minister of Science:
We do not need a real ‘Institute’ yet, like an ‘Asgardian Academy of Science’, housed in a building somewhere, where all the research is done. For now, we need a body through which the funding is organized. It has to be decided which groups in the world should get funding for doing specific research in collaboration with the industry and academic and research institutes.
The Minister of Citizenship, in turn, believes personal data network security to be of acute importance. Asgardia being a state that is far ahead of all countries that exist today, he plans to use the most advanced technologies for determining citizens’ and residents’ IDs.
The Asgardia Executive Congress is to take part in Vienna April 10-12, 2019
