Space-MATCH 2013

18 November 2013

Discover interesting non-space applications and new market opportunities at the ninth Space-MATCH Brokerage event.

Space companies will meet with non-space industries and ESA specialists to present technologies developed for space programmes and discuss their potential for terrestrial use.

Aimed at strengthen the link between space research and successful commercial business spin-off developments, the Space-MATCH event will present a variety of technologies and services, based on European space innovations, and suited for commercial exploitation here on Earth.

A large number of high-tech companies will present their innovative activities, and how they have turned space technology into novel technology-based systems and services for non-space terrestrial application.

This year the focus will be sensor and monitoring systems, and the event will provide an excellent opportunity for match-making with high-tech companies, sharing technology and project ideas and identifying new business opportunities.

The event, to be held on 21 November in ESTEC, holds the underlying idea that space know-how can also be applied successfully outside the space domain and contributes to innovation and new business in many different areas.

The Space-MATCH 2013 event will help to turn leading-edge technology and know-how from our space programmes into commercial successes for European companies.

Organised by Dutch TNO, and commissioned by Netherlands Space Office, the event is at its ninth edition. It is supported by ESA Technology Transfer Programme Office, aiming at strengthen European industry by identifying new business opportunities and creating new jobs through space innovation.

The event will have an international scope through the collaboration with Enterprise Europe Network (EEN) and its Aerospace and Space Sector Group, which ESA is part of through its Technology Transfer Programme Office.

The event will take place in ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands 21 November 2013.
