The way to work with ESA’s Technology R&D programmes, the Basic Technology Research Programme (TRP) and General Support Technology Programme (GSTP), is by responding to the Invitations to Tender (ITT) published in EMITS, the Agency’s electronic ITT system. Each programme is governed by its own rules.
The TRP, being part of the Agency's mandatory activities, is open to companies and organisations from all member states. GSTP is an optional programme. Participation is open to companies and organisations from participating states supporting the action concerned.
