The Office leverages and forges partnerships with governmental, intergovernmental, non-governmental and private sector institutions to achieve its goals. Such collaboration enables the implementation of a diverse programme enriched by knowledge and expertise not always readily available within the Office and provides a further avenue for strengthening international cooperation. Engagement with other entities of the United Nations on the use of space-related technologies is conducted through UN-Space.
Presently the Office benefits from strategic alliances with entities and space-related institutions of Austria, China, Germany, Japan, the United States of America as well as the European Commission, European Space Agency, Digital Globe, COSPAR, IAA, IAF, IISL, ISPRS, Kyushu Institute of Technology, the Politecnico di Torino and Instituto Superiore Mario Boella and Secure World Foundation. Cooperation with the UN-affiliated Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education located in China, Brazil and Mexico, India, Jordan, Nigeria and Morocco as well as the network of UN-SPIDER Regional Support Offices is well established.
