ESA space solutions is a ‘one-stop shop’ for re-purposing space technology. By exploiting space know-how, facilitating and inspiring its use in new applications and sharing this knowledge we bring ‘space back down to Earth’. At the heart of this is an agile and specialist transfer and incubation network, connecting and enabling businesses and entrepreneurs across Europe.
ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs) are embedded in the local community. They are managed by local champions who connect the centres to local- industry, universities, research organisations, government and investor communities.
Tapping into this excellence provides rich opportunities to get your product or service market-ready and off the ground.
Knowing exactly how space can benefit your business may not always be obvious. Our technology brokers are experts in assessing market needs in areas where there is a high potential for exploiting space technology. They provide comprehensive advice, research, market studies, product development services and more to support you - before, during and after transfer.
Intellectual Property (IP) refers to the protection of creations of the mind, which have both a moral and a commercial value.
IP law typically grants the author of an intellectual creation exclusive rights for exploiting and benefiting from their creation. However, these rights, also called monopoly right of exploitation, are limited in scope, duration and geographical extent.
