ESA Technology Transfer Competition

On behalf of the European Space Agency ESA, Brimatech Services GmbH is organizing a technology transfer competition to generate new ideas for successfully applying Space Technology on Earth. We are looking for your bold idea for new and revolutionary innovation using Space Technology.
Memory foam, freeze-dried-food, cordless-vacuums and of course space blankets are all spin-off technologies from space. The range of those technologies finding applications on Earth is far longer, but now - IT IS TIME FOR SOMETHING NEW!
We are looking for Space Technologies with a strong focus on hard- and software, such as materials, energy supply, propulsion, etc. Positioning and navigation, earth observation and satellite communication applications are not the focus of this competition.
Participation is very easy - tell us your idea and include the following:
  • Title
  • Description of the space technology or reference to the ESA IP (List of ESA IPs)
  • For which purpose do you want to use the space technology on Earth?
  • Describe the application area on Earth – What is the current state-of-the-art and resulting challenges?
  • What is the innovation, how do you want to apply the space technical solution?
  • What is the market on Earth – who is the customer?

Submit your idea until the 4.12.2022

Winners will be announced by the 13.12.2022

  • Realisation potential of the proposed innovation,
