ESA Space Solutions Belgium, supported by ESA and BELSPO, has a Permanent Open Call for Technology Transfer Proposals, or Proof of Concept (PoC). This Open Call for Technology Transfer Proofs of Concept is directed specifically towards determining and eliminating technical risks related to developing and launching a new terrestrial application of space technology.
The PoC Open Call allows both Belgian space and non-space organizations to submit proposals to develop technology transfer demonstrators.
Together with ESA, Verhaert has the budget to select 8 projects to be funded with a maximum amount of 38.000 euros each. The projects should be executed in maximum 6 months. There’s an application deadline at the end of each month, the proposals that have been received that month will then be evaluated. If 8 proposals are selected, the call will be closed. Until 8 proposals have been selected, the call will remain open until the next deadline.
