Oxford, Open call for Technology Transfer Demonstrator Projects

ESA Technology Transfer Programme Office has issued an open call for Technology Transfer Demonstrators Projects that aims to identify and adapt space technologies for non-space use, resulting in commercially viable products and high potential companies.

The Open Call for Technology Transfer Proposals is directed specifically towards the determination and elimination of technical risk particular to the new terrestrial application. The Call allows both space and non-space organisations or individuals to submit proposals to develop technology transfer demonstrators regarding the transfer of a space technology into a non-space application.

Priority is given to projects where there is a clear ground-based commercial application with a customer group with defined needs, and for whom the transfer demonstrator may be used to gain commercial traction. Applications that can identify a specific customer that has expressed a clear interest in the technology/demonstrator would be at an advantage, especially if the customer was involved in the demonstrator project. 

Applicants are invited to submit their project proposal according to the format and instructions detailed here, using the online form available here.

Satellite Applications Catapult, together with ESA, will select eight (8) projects to be funded with a maximum amount of 40.375 EURO each.

Applications must be received by 12:00 CET on Wednesday 8th July 2015

For more information please click here.

The proposal will be evaluated by the Evaluation Board consisting of ESA, Satellite Applications Catapult and stakeholders and/or experts.

KiNNO acts as a technology transfer broker for ESA, engaged in technology transfer and commercialization activities, in order to promote suitable technologies in the market, belonging in various fields.
