Acting on behalf of the Federal Government, the DLR’s Space Administration designs and implements Germany’s Space Programme, which integrates all German space activities on the national and European level.
The DLR Space Administration on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has started the initiative INNOspace® to promote innovations, technology transfer and new markets.
By using new commercial concepts in the space sector, Airbus Defence and Space establishes itself as European market leader in technology and industrial development. Airbus Defence and Space welcomes the opportunity to connect with external innovators through this competition in order to shape the future of the new space economy together.
The ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs) in Bavaria and Hesse offer the only start-up programme in Germany that promotes company foundations based on technology transfers from and into the space sector from the initial phase up to the marketable product. In close collaboration with renowned partners the programme supports young companies for a period of up to two years. The start-ups receive financial and technical support as an incentive.
