ESA’s Technology Transfer Programme Office (TTPO) mission is to inspire and facilitate the use of space technology, systems and know-how for non-space applications.
Space tech to non-space
TTPO aims to strengthen European industry by identifying new business opportunities for providers of space technology and systems. It enhances the know-how and competitiveness of these providers while broadening their business horizons.
The office has with its technology broker network successfully transferred over 340 space technologies to non-space sectors for applications as diverse as ground penetrating radar to detect cracks in mine tunnels and quick wound healing by cold plasma from ISS experiements.
Whether start-ups or spin-offs, ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs) help to create viable business and new jobs by providing support to over 150 companies every year in Europe. More than 650 new companies have fostered at the ESA BICs and received support to date.
