On 20 September, between 10.00 – 11.30 the BSGN Advanced Materials Accelerator invites you to online event to discover space-enabled opportunities for driving new materials innovations by leveraging the microgravity R&D platforms in the Earth’s orbit. The accelerator is coordinated by the Satellite Applications Catapult in the UK with partners including AIMPLAS, Innovate UK KTN, the National Composites Centre (NCC), the DLR Institute of Material Research (DLR) and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI).
At this webinar, the ESA BSGN Advanced Materials Accelerator will launch its Call for Proposals, which will invite light-touch proposals from innovators and enterprises. The most attractive ones will be selected to form a Project Portfolio for the accelerator for further development and maturation.
The BSGN Advanced Materials Accelerator has been established to support innovators and enterprises developing new products, technologies, and services at the intersection of advanced materials and microgravity engineering. The accelerator promotes opportunities for engineering novel materials in microgravity, and the contract is carried out under the BSGN programme of and funded by the European Space Agency.
The BSGN Accelerator has three phases, with the first phase designed to generate interest and demand, and support projects and businesses with commercial potential that could develop products and services in space. The activity will focus on five advanced materials technology areas:
