Many technologies originating from Europe’s space programmes have already proven their worth in products we all use in our everyday life.
The ‘Space Solutions’ trademark has been created by ESA to give special recognition to products and services that make use of space technology and space-provided services.
To promote space technology transfer and to make patented space technology available to entrepreneurial students, ESA has set up the Space Solutions University Challenge contest.
Advanced technologies are continuously being developed as part of Europe’s space programmes to cope with the harsh nature of space.
They are characterised by their:
- strength and durability
- efficiency and reliability
- low weight and compactness
- high level of resistance to temperature extremes
- radiation and corrosion resistance
The technologies and components developed for spacecraft have in return led to intelligent and innovative solutions in a variety of areas here on Earth.
