Space technologies: tracking innovation and startup development

Space innovation makes us discover new worlds, but also develop technologies addressing pressing challenges and improve life on Earth. What does the future hold in this domain? We are excited to invite you to the online event “Space technologies: tracking innovation and startup development ” hosted by the Observatory on Patents and Technology at the EPO to discuss the latest technology, market, and IP trends in space innovation.

The event will bring together perspectives from government agencies, like the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), and private companies driving technological advancement in space. These leaders in the field will discuss current challenges and opportunities in space innovation, the engagement of start-ups and other private actors, and the role of patents in fostering new space technologies.

Further highlights include an introduction to the EPO’s new technology platform on space-related inventions and patent insight report on propulsion systems for space. The platform and report make the latest technical knowledge on space technologies available to researchers, scientists, and anyone with an interest in the sector. Additionally, the Deep Tech Finder, updated with new filters for space-related inventions, will enable the search for start-ups specialized in space technology in Europe.
