CREODIAS at Industry Space Days 2018
Industry Space Days (ISD) are organised by ESA to bring together the main European players in the space sector. Their main purpose is to increase the involvement of SMEs in space activities and to foster cross-fertilisation between the different actors in the entire space sector. To this end, a series of measures are taken to facilitate networking and the establishing of new business contacts. These include: pre-arranged face-to-face meetings, exhibitions highlighting the innovations and expertise of selected SMEs, briefings on business opportunities by large groups and institutional organisations, and conferences on space perspectives and market trends.
The seventh Industry Space Days event organised by ESA’s SME Policy Office supporting SMEs working with ESA, took place at ESA ESTEC, Noordwijk, in the Netherlands on 11–12 September 2018. ISD 2018 was attended by over 1500 people from industry. Some 900 companies from 39 countries participated in about 15 000 pre-arranged business meetings. An industry exhibition featuring 140 stands provided additional opportunities for European suppliers, especially SMEs, to present their products, projects, or their R&D to potential customers.
