To support the coordination of R&D projects between the different technological fields addressed by ESA, the following 10 Competence Domains (CDs) were introduced.
The recent technological achievements of R&D activities carried out under the frame of TDE and GSTP are displayed on the following sites and structured per Competence Domain.
Just click on one of the links below to learn more about the Competence Domains themselves as well as the results of their R&D activities.
