Space technologies: tracking innovation and startup development

Space innovation makes us discover new worlds, but also develop technologies addressing pressing challenges and improve life on Earth. What does the future hold in this domain? On May 28th, 2024, the European Patent Office (EPO) invites all innovators in this industry to the online event titled "Space technologies: tracking innovation and startup development", hosted by the Observatory on Patents and Technology at the EPO to discuss the latest technology, market, and IP trends in space innovation.

The event will host expert speakers from the space sector and bring together perspectives from government agencies, like the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), and private companies driving technological advancement in space. These leaders in the field will discuss current challenges and opportunities in space innovation, the engagement of start-ups and other private actors, and the role of patents in fostering new space technologies.

Further highlights include an introduction to the EPO’s new technology platform on space-related inventions and patent insight report on propulsion systems for space. The platform and report make the latest technical knowledge on space technologies available to researchers, scientists, and anyone with an interest in the sector. Additionally, EPO's Deep Tech Finder, updated with new filters for space-related inventions, will enable the search for start-ups specialized in space technology in Europe.

In order to join the EPO and guest space experts to learn more about the future of innovation in space, you need to register on the official dedicated webpage of the online event.
