Objective: The development, incubation and upscaling of start-ups will be fostered across all space areas. Moreover, support will be provided to foster business and innovation-friendly ecosystems, including strengthening space related skills. We want to increase the number of innovative start-ups in the EU doing business using Copernicus and Galileo data and/or developing space technologies. We want to improve their ability to work with customers and their capacity to expand. The objective is to make them investment-ready and able to secure VC funding.
