She is an official observer of the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and briefed then U.S. Secretary of the Interior Gayle Norton in preparation for the Earth Observation Summit. Prof. Gabrynowicz was a member of the International Institute of Space Law delegation to the Unidroit Committee of Governmental Experts for the Preparation of a Draft Protocol to the Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment on Matters Specific to Space Assets.

Since joining the Center in 2001 Prof. Gabrynowicz has been instrumental in forming and developing several relationships between the Center and foreign entities.
