The different ways we provide funding and access to the European space network
Why innovate with space?
Space is an incredibly hard environment to work in: weightless, airless and with daunting temperature extremes. The demand for systems that operate reliably for years on end, with no chance of repair, presents a perpetual challenge to scientists and engineers. The resulting technologies are in a class of their own, offering valuable attributes to terrestrial industries.
Belgian tech transfers through our network
The ESA Technology Transfer Network
Space Solutions Belgium is part of the ESA technoloy Transfer Network. Together we exploit technology and know-how from space and initiate a technology transfer between technology provider and receiver. 20 incubation centers within 17 countries, over 60+ locations, support space-related start-ups to get their business off the ground.
Contact us about these incubation and funding programmes.
GEO Living Labs promote the use of Geolocation and Earth Observation (GEO). The labs combine the knowledge of start-ups, GEO data experts, and corporate industry to create breakthrough applications.
FIRE, the Forum for Innovation and Research in European Earth Observation, focuses on fostering the development of current and future markets for Earth observation in key commercial sectors.
