ESA Exploration Innovation Exchanges

Space exploration opens-up new opportunities for delivering benefits to society. To create and capitalise on those opportunities, ESA is taking a more proactive role in fostering cross-synergies between space and terrestrial R&D, and has initiated the ESA Open Innovation Exchange project.

 

Upcoming Innovation Exchanges

 

 

The European Space Agency is aiming to foster commercially driven research in space in order to lead new products and services onto the market. This will require a fertilisation between space and non-space sectors. For this, ESA is organising on 4 June 2018, at the ERASMUS Innovation Centre  (ESTEC, the Netherlands), the Innovation Exchange – Commercialise Space Research.

Past Innovation Exchanges

 


 

In 2015, the European Space Agency (ESA) published its Space Exploration Strategy which is based on 4 strategic goals (science, economics, global cooperation, and inspiration) and which opens-up new opportunities for delivering benefits to society. To create and capitalise on those opportunities, ESA is taking a more proactive role in fostering cross-synergies between space and terrestrial R&D, and has initiated the ESA Open Innovation Exchange project.
