ESA Space Solutions is the go-to place for great business ideas involving space in all areas of society and economy. Our mission is to support companies - small and large - in Europe in the development of products and services using satellite applications and space technologies.
ESA Space Solutions and Business Applications are part of ESA’s ARTES (Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems) 4.0 Programme and provide different types of funding opportunities such as Kick-Starts, Feasibility Studies and Demonstration Projects. ESA contributes with its financial support, technical expertise, business mentoring, and access to its networks and branding. We can also support your ideas of transferring space technology into non-space markets or vice versa. You might be interested to apply for our different funding opportunities.
In 2017 we launched the Space Solutions Alliance, a network for space and non-space corporate organisations, research institutes and public institutions. Our ESA Business Applications Ambassadors are the first national point of contact to act as a bridge between ESA, Member States and industry. Furthermore, you can view the contacts of the ESA Space Solutions Executive Board. The ESA Investor Forum takes place multiple times a year and is our leading programme on international business support for ambitious and fast-growing companies. You will find an overview of our network below.
