These notes are prepared to give an impression of considerations and activities in Denmark related to ESROand ESA, roughly in the period 1964 to 1990. In a number of chapters we consider early space-relatedresearch in Denmark, the initial phase of the ESRO era and the following period, including the phase of transition from ESRO to ESA when Denmark seriously considered leaving the space co-operation. A chapter gives examples of activities in the ESA era within space science and astronomy, Earth Observation andmicrogravity, followed by a final one dealing with the national management of optional programmes and theinvolvement by industry.In drafting the notes we have taken advantage of the work carried out in the Introductory Studies
carried outto secure and place in order the archives of the Danish Space Research Advisory Committee. In thisconnection excerpts of individual documents (mostly minutes of meetings, letters and reports) were taken.To a great extent they form the basis for many of the points made in the notes.
