New year, new project!

Bringing space entrepreneurship closer to CEE and SEE startups and scaleups.

InnORBIT project was kicked-off online on 20-21 January 2021. During the meeting, an overview of the project was presented, and partners shared their expertise and ideas, focusing on the coordination of the tasks to be implemented in the following months. 

InnORBIT aims to support start-ups and scale-ups to grow and commercialise their space solutions via sustainable and effective local initiatives. Focus is given on Central Eastern and South-Eastern European countries with vibrant tech ecosystems and industry verticals with great potential for contributing to the commercialisation of space. Alongside them, InnORBIT will co-develop a business support programme to help space entrepreneurs in starting and scaling-up their commercial activities and a capacity building programme for training intermediaries to set up and run sustainable local initiatives. 

InnORBIT project started in January 2021 and will last for 30 months. It receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme, under grant agreement No 101004212 and involves 7 partners from 6 countries. 

The project social media accounts and website will be announced soon in order to stay in touch with all project activities.
