ESA Space Solutions Belgium, supported by ESA and BELSPO, has a Permanent Open Call for Technology Transfer Demonstrator Proposals. The Technology Transfer Demonstrator has the aim of proving the relevance of a technology/know-how for another application field as well as reducing the risks of the undertaking. The Technology Demonstrator consists in building, deploying and running a complete pilot system in an operational environment, with the objective to assess its operational suitability, and elaborating the implementation plan.
The Demonstrator Call allows both Belgian space and non-space organizations to submit proposals to develop technology transfer demonstrators.
Verhaert Masters in Innovation, as the Belgian ESA technology broker, invites applicants to submit proposals for Demonstrator projects regarding the transfer of a space technology into a non-space application.
Together with ESA, Verhaert can fund 1 project with a maximum amount of 144.000 euros. The project is to be executed in maximum 12 months.
