“Space Moves!” – INNOspace Masters Enters Its Next Round

Submission phase for the innovation competition’s fourth edition started

The INNOspace Masters is being organised by the Space Administration of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) as an embedded component of the INNOspace® initiative. AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen has been implementing the competition since 2015 on behalf of DLR. Partners of the competition are Airbus, OHB and the German ESA Business Incubation Centres (BICs).

Following the emergence of the New Space Economy, the fusion of different disciplines and sectors of industry is offering more and more potential for successful innovations.
Under the motto “Space Moves!”, ideas and concepts with different degrees of innovation and maturity will be sought for the various categories of the competition from 8 November 2018 until 8 February 2019.

The focus will be on cross-industry technology transfer in the form of both spin-offs and spin-ins, new business models, and other innovative concepts with a connection to the aerospace industry. Ideas can be submitted from virtually any area, including mobility, propulsion technology, materials, components, communication, networking, sensors, or miniaturisation.
