Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies - Space

Earth observation

Horizon 2020 Earth observation (EO) activities are considered an essential element to accompany the investments made by the Union in Copernicus, the Union Earth observation and monitoring programme. Through Copernicus and Earth Observation activities in the Horizon 2020 the European Union also contributes to advancing the Global Earth Observation Systems of Systems (GEOSS).

In particular, activities under the societal challenge for climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials focus on contributing to and drawing benefit from GEOSS. This aims notably at the development of comprehensive and sustained global environmental observation and information systems that stimulate the smart use of strategic resources, support the development of evidence-based policies, foster new environmental and climate services, and develop new opportunities in global markets. Activities under the Leadership in Industrial Technologies part focus on the evolution of Copernicus and the exploitation of existing European space infrastructure by promoting the development of innovative products and services based on remote sensing, geo-positioning or other types of satellite enabled data as well as geo-information generated already by services such as Copernicus services.

 

Space business, entrepreneurship, outreach and education

Space start-ups in Europe are faced with a great difficulty in accessing finance including risk-capital. Moreover, despite their high technical skills, start-ups in Europe are lagging behind when it comes to business expertise.

The emergence of a business- and innovation-friendly ecosystem needs to be supported at European, regional and national levels. This could be promoted through network hubs that bring together the space, digital and user sectors. The objective is to open up space to non-space entrants, including: i) innovative European ICT entrepreneurs and user sectors (such as energy, transport and others building on existing clusters or hubs), ii) ESA's space solutions and iii) initiatives in the Member States (e.g. innovation clusters, boosters). There should be support for the exchange of best practices and common specifications, and capacity building maximising benefits for all Member States.

 

Space technologies, science and exploration

Support to generic and mission-oriented R&D technology at low and mid TRL levels is important for addressing non-dependence and competitiveness of the European Space industry. Generic technology development allows longer-term, innovative and breakthrough technologies to emerge. IOD/IOV (in-orbit-demonstration/validation) addresses mission specific or application-oriented needs and permit industries to mature marketable products.

On the low TRL side, support for future and emerging space technologies are expected to initiate new lines of disruptive technologies through collaborations between advanced multidisciplinary science and cutting-edge engineering often involving innovative SMEs. This will turn the excellent science base of Europe into a competitive advantage by establishing early stage European leadership in promising future space technology areas that would be capable of renewing the basis for future European competitiveness and growth.
