IPN featured at European Space Agency (ESA)

Instituto Pedro Nunes and ESA Space Solutions Portugal were featured in an European Space Agency (ESA) article about the ESA Ambassador Platform for Portugal. 

The article aimed to introduce the ESA Ambassador Platform for Portugal, a team that includes eight innovation managers dedicated to fostering space tech-based entrepreneurship and businesses.

In 2014, the IPN became the first Space Solutions Centre of the European Space Agency, among the 22 existing centres in Europe, to bring together the three technology transfer programmes promoted by ESA: the ESA Business Incubation Centre, an incubation centre that currently integrates a national network of 15 incubators that support Portuguese companies using space technology in terrestrial applications or wishing to enter the commercial space market; the ESA Technology Broker and the ESA Business Application Ambassador Platform. The ESA Space Solutions Portugal programme is made possible thanks to national funding for the ESA ARTES programme.

Our incubated companies HIDROMOD, LDA, Connect Robotics, Spotlite e Present Technologies were also featured in the article as examples of startups that work with ESA Space Solutions Portugal and contribute to solving big world problems.
