ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs), its associated network of business incubators and the European Space Incubators Network (ESINET) are designed to bridge the gap between an idea and getting the technology transfer project off the ground, and assisting its development into a viable business.
ESA BICs - part of ESA's Technology Transfer Programme Office (TTPO) - provide technical expertise and business-development support.
Entrepreneurs: Contact us if you have an innovative idea or business plan based on using a space technology or system in a non-space environment. If you are ready for commercial development, submit your proposal to join one of the ESA BICs.
Space companies: Contact us to outsource the spin-off initiatives of your employees in an innovative win-win scheme.
Research Centres and Universities: Encourage your staff and students to set up their own companies bringing leading-edge research to the marketplace through ESA Business Incubation.
