Argotec SpacePark Accelerator: open for ambitions

The Argotec SpacePark aims to be one of the most advanced space factories in Europe, with the capability to build more than 50 satellites per year and encompassing its own Mission Control Center to operate missions. This way Argotec, the Italian aerospace engineering company founded in 2008 in Turin, can maintain full ownership of the programs, from inception to the final operations in space.

The SpacePark is situated in the iconic building designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer in San Mauro Torinese, just outside Turin. With over 11,000 sqm of operational spaces, about 17,000 sqm of open green areas, and 1,200 sqm dedicated to its industrial accelerator, the SpacePark will undoubtedly be one of the places where the future of space comes to life.

In this context, the Argotec SpacePark Accelerator provides access to state-of-the-art laboratories and instruments, offering participants a unique opportunity to establish commercial partnerships with Argotec, executing a range of projects and missions aimed at revolutionizing the space landscape. With these resources at their disposal, start-ups and small companies can conduct in-depth research and development, innovate faster, and bring their ideas to fruition. This access extends further to international opportunities, enabling start-ups to connect and collaborate with space professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe.

Argotec, already a corporate partner of the ESA BIC Turin incubation program, will introduce and present its SpacePark Industrial Accelerator to the innovation ecosystem with a public event hosted by I3P, the Incubator of Politecnico di Torino. The event is open: it is intended not only for start-ups and small companies involved in the space sector, but also for those who want to learn more about the space business and the available opportunities with Argotec.

The presentation will be held mainly in Italian language, but non-Italian speakers are welcome and will be able to interact in English during the Q&A session.

How to join the event

The event will be held on Monday, May 20th, 2024, starting at 5 PM (CEST), in presence in the Agorà hall of the I3P incubator, located within the Campus of Politecnico di Torino and accessible from both the main gate of Corso Castelfidardo 30/A and the pedestrian entrance of Via Pier Carlo Boggio 59.

Participation in the event is free of charge, subject to registration on Eventbrite.
