Space week Italy 2015




ESA's Technology Transfer Programme Office (TTPO) aims to strengthen European industry by identifying new business opportunities for providers of space technology and systems. It enhances the know-how and competitiveness of these providers while broadening their business horizons.

The office has with its technology broker network successfully transferred over 200 space technologies to non-space sectors for applications as diverse as cooling suits for a Formula 1 racing team, ground penetrating radar to detect cracks in mine tunnels and several health-care innovations.

Whether start-ups or spin-offs, ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs) help to create viable business and new jobs by providing support to over 100 companies every year in Europe. More than 300 new companies have received support to date.

TTPO is also responsible for the management of the patents portfolio and is tasked to market ESA’s own IP to the non-space industry in order to make sure they are exploited to their full potential.
