Contribute to the harmonisation of European space technologies
Small and medium-sized enterprises are invited to contribute to the definition of the European space technology roadmaps in 2018, and to stay informed of developments.
Within the ESA-led European technology harmonisation process, SME4Space – the panel of European Space SME associations, aims to gather inputs and contributions from SMEs.
Are you an SME active in any of the following technology areas? You can have efficient access to the different stages of the process and the possibility to voice your views.
|Cycle 1||Cycle 2|
|De-orbiting Technologies||Chemical Propulsion – Components|
|Frequency and Time Generation and Distribution (Space & Ground)||Coatings|
|Photonics||Deployable Booms & Inflatable Structures|
|Position Sensors (for mechanisms)||Life Support Technologies|
|RF & Optical metrology||System Modelling and Simulation tools|
|2018 Meeting dates|
|Cycle 1||Cycle 2|
|6-8 February 2018||Mapping Meeting||10-12 April 2018||Mapping Meeting|
SME4Space invites you to subscribe to their dedicated mailing list for up-to-date news and information about the technical dossiers you are interested in: https://www.sme4space.org/harmo-ml.
If you are an SME and would like to contribute directly to the harmonisation of the technologies mentioned above, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Technology harmonisation involves building an overview of the current European R&D situation and needs, establishing coordinated European space technology roadmaps and preparing a European space technology master plan, through a process of consultation, coordination, harmonisation and agreement between ESA, its Member States, European institutions and industry.
The main objectives of technology harmonisation are to:
- Fill strategic gaps and minimise unnecessary duplications
- Consolidate European strategic capabilities
- Achieve a coordinated and committed European space technology policy and planning
- Contribute to continuity and coherence between technology and industrial policies
