On 26 September, the Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have announced the opening of the third round of the KiboCUBE initiative.

KiboCUBE was launched in September 2015 as a capacity-building initiative between UNOOSA and JAXA to offer developing and emerging countries the opportunity to deploy cube satellites (CubeSats) from the Japanese Kibo module of the International Space Station (ISS).

Applications for the third round of the KiboCUBE initiative are open to educational or research institutions from developing and emerging countries that are United Nations Member States. Applications close on 31 March 2018.
