Space

Building on the successes of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), 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. This will anchor and structure space research and innovation at the European level and address key aspects identified in the Commission Communication “EU Space Industrial Policy: Releasing the Potential for Growth in the Space Sector”.

Actions will be carried out in conjunction with research activities of the Member States and European Space Agency (ESA), aiming at building up complementarity among different actors. For this purpose an enhanced coordination between the different actors is envisaged.

The Commission proposal for Horizon 2020 sets the following motto for EU Space R&D for 2014 to 2020 ‘Prepare for the increasing role of space in the future and reap the benefits of space now’.
