Call for Feasibility Studies & Proof of Concept


ESA has opened a call to foster Space Technology Transfer.

*** 
The FEASIBILITY STUDIES (FS) aims at assessing the feasibility of the adaptation and the use of a space technology to another field of application. The FS shall encompass the technical risks, identify user requirements, study the market and develop an operational plan towards a successful technology transfer.

1 month FS projects will be funded up to a maximum of 10k €.

*** 
The PROOF OF CONCEPT (PoC) is directed to demonstrate to a user that the space heritage meets their main functional and technical requirements by building a breadboard.

6 month PoC may be funded up to a maximum of 50k €.

*** 
Space origin can be hardware or software, know-how, processes, methodologies and 
systems developed or adapted for space applications. When the technology was not 
originally developed for space, but adapted and qualified to the space conditions, there should be clear benefits/teachings that the adaptation for the space field brings to the new applications (eg: size and weight reduction, material used, test results, etc).

*** 
Deadline: 16th April 2019 at 13:00 (CET).
