Bringing space and industry together

Broker network

ESA space solutions brokers are the key developers of commercial transfer opportunities. They advocate ESA's own Intellecual Property Rights (IPR), supporting both spin-off and spin-in transfers.

Our broker network actively boosts European global competitiveness. We fuel industry-innovation and growth by transferring space technology, systems, services and know-how to non-space sectors.
