The motto for EU Space R&D for 2014 to 2020 is ‘Prepare for the increasing role of space in the future and reap the benefits of space now’.
Horizon 2020 will enable the European space research community to develop innovative space technologies and operational concepts "from idea to demonstration in space", and to use space data for scientific, public, or commercial purposes.
Actions will be carried out in conjunction with research activities of the Member States and the European Space Agency (ESA).
As this program is under the heading leadership in enabling and industrial technologies, projects need industrial partners and should lead to a higher technology readiness level.
For an overview of the 2018-2020 work program with topics and deadlines, please use the link to the right.
At least 3 partners from 3 different EU or associated countries are required to form a consortium. Individual topics might have other rules.
Please contact the research department (FA) if you would like to apply as a coordinator or if you have been asked to become a consortium partner, we will help you with the formalities of the application.
