Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs)
2 ESA sites: ESTEC and ESOC | 3 networking days | >50 final presentations
ESA’s Technology Programme team invites you to join their three-day Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs) to share and discuss the main results of our technology programmes in the areas of:
- Space electronics with a special focus on sensors and detectors (CD01)
- Propulsion (CD07)
- Space Operations (CD08)
- Digital Engineering and Artificial Intelligence (CD09)
- Space Safety and debris (CD10).
The event will be held 2-4 July at the European Space Research and Technology Centre in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, and will be joined on 3 July by the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
During the event, industry and academia will present their final results of technology developments within ESA's technology programmes TDE (Technology Development Element) and GSTP (General Support Technology Programme). The final presentations will be complemented by keynote speeches and a dedicated exhibition area will give entities the opportunity to showcase their results and foster discussion and networking. ESA representatives will be present to discuss about on-going and future R&D activities as well as technology transfer opportunities.
Participants who wish to attend will be required to register free of charge.

Background of the Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs)
The dissemination and exploitation of technology achievements is an essential role of the Directorate of Technology, Engineering & Quality and fundamental in maintaining its position as the ESA technology innovation engine.
One of the main objectives of the Directorate is to develop a broad range of advanced technologies up to a sufficient maturity level in order to be used in space missions.
The Space Engineering and Technology Final Presentation Days (SET-FPDs) is an event oriented to European Industries, Academia and ESA technical experts to present their achievements in developing advanced technologies for space missions. During the SET-FPDs, recently completed technology contracts and the achievements made within the Directorate of Technology, Engineering & Quality and other ESA directorates will be presented.
The SET-FPDs high level goals are to:
- Disseminate the achievements of ESA technology programmes and the results from recently completed R&D technology activities to a diverse and wide audience
- Initiate a discussion among experts on a broad range of technologies in different technical competence domains in order to address the future technological space challenges
- Bring together technology experts from European Industries, Academia and ESA to discuss Space R&D
- Provide a forum for participants to share their views on R&D directions, strategies, technologies and investments.
The SET-FPDs will also be an opportunity for attendees to increase their professional network and to stay informed of the latest technologies in the different ESA Competence Domains.
