Brief, 12-slide presentation describing goals and rules of the workshop on Lunar Commercialization, Space Studies Program (SSP-09) in Barcelona, August 1.

The goal of the workshop was to explore the viability of using public-private partnerships to open the new space frontier. The bulk of the workshop was a team competition to create a innovative business plan for the commercialization of the moon.

The public private partnership concept is reviewed and "open architecture," as an infrastructure for potential, external cooperation.
