ESA Space Solutions is a ‘one-stop shop’ for re-purposing space technology. By exploiting space know-how, facilitating and inspiring its use in new applications we bring ‘space back down to Earth’. At the heart of this is an agile and specialist transfer and incubation network, connecting and enabling businesses and entrepreneurs across Europe.
ESA’s Innovation Partner Network finds new applications for technology originally developed for the space sector, such as rockets, robots, and even astronaut suit cooling systems. With representatives in 15 countries across Europe offering fully funded technology scouting, the ESA IPN is the ideal partner to connect you with the right solution for your business. By identifying industrial challenges and connecting these with the high-tech capabilities of Europe’s space sector, the ESA IPN has successfully supported more than 360 transfers of space technology, systems, and know-how into other sectors.
Utilising space technology can offer ambitious entrepreneurs the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage within their sector. ESA Business Incubation Centre UK provides the support and funding that start-up companies need to turn their ideas into profitable products and services using space technology, or to develop technologies for use in space.
Knowing exactly how space can benefit your business may not always be obvious. Visit us at stand G20 to see how you can access space technologies and use them to develop your next generation of products and services.
ESA Space Solutions is managed in the UK by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (a part of UK Research and Innovation).
