28 January 2021 INNORBIT – supporting start-ups, scale-up and clusters in space InnORBIT, a project consortium of 7 partners from 6 countries, will support 50 start-ups and scale-ups to grow and commercialise their space solutions via 20 sustainable and effective initiatives. The focus is on SEE and CEE countries with vibrant tech ecosystems and industry verticals with great potential for contributing to the commercialisation in space sector. We anchor our initiatives to innovation intermediaries well-embedded in their ecosystems, starting with a pivotal space technology and industry association in Romania, an intermediary managing 3 high-tech clusters in Greece and a major digital innovation hub in Croatia. Alongside them we co-develop our solutions: a business support programme to help space entrepreneurs in starting and scaling-up their commercial activities and a capacity building programme for training intermediaries to set up and run local initiatives. InnORBIT service portfolio includes trainings, mentoring, networking and support to access financing and funding opportunities. The project will support over 20 intermediaries to generate their own local initiatives, openly demonstrating and proving the replication potential of our solutions. The project “InnORBIT, Empowering innovation intermediaries to generate sustainable initiatives to incentivise and accelerate the commercialisation of space innovation” has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101004212.
