Azores Regional Government
At the time of the signature of the Memorandum of Understanding, the Secretary for Science, Technology and Insfrastructures was representing the Azores Government. Due to subsequent administrative reorganizations, RAEGE now integrates the responsibilities of the Azores Mission Structure for Space, recently created within the Secretariat for the Sea, Science and Technology. Furthermore, Associação RAEGE Açores (a nonprofit private association between the Government of Azores and SATA, the regional air transport company) has been set up to manage the scientific and technical activity of the Azores RAEGE infrastructures.
