Space Tech Expo B2B Matchmaking

European Space Policy

The main aim of the EU’s space policy is to use space-related technology to tackle some of the most pressing challenges today, such as fighting climate change, helping to stimulate technological innovation, and providing socio-economic benefits to citizens.

The space industry contributes to the objectives of the EU's Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth. It drives scientific progress and boosts growth and employment in other areas such as telecommunications, navigation, and Earth observation. These systems and services guarantee EU independence and security, while also helping to address major societal challenges including climate change, scare resources, health, and an ageing population. They also provide us with strategically important knowledge that underpins the EU’s external relations in areas such as development assistance and humanitarian aid.

EU space programmes

Between 2014 and 2020, over EUR 12 billion will be spent on the implementation of the EU’s three space programmes:

  1. Satellite navigation: The Galileo and EGNOS programmes which provide positioning, navigation, and timing information worldwide.
  2. Earth observation: The Copernicus programme which provides Earth observation data and information.
  3. Space research: Part of the Horizon 2020 programme focuses specifically on space technologies, applications (e.g. GNSS and Earth observation), weather, sciences, exploration, and other space related topics.

Enterprise Europe Network is striving to facilitate the project partner search for small and medium enterprises from Europe and beyond for upcoming calls of the EU space programmes mentioned above by organizing B2B Matchmaking Events like this.
