New technology developed in projects supported by the European Space Agency (ESA) has already found wide applications in the non-space industry and into our daily life. More than 200 cases have been identified where European space technology has been transferred to the non-space sectors on commercial terms.
Up to now, Danish industry has only experienced a very limited share of this process, and Denmark has not been active in the ESA technology Transfer Programme.
The Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation (Forsknings og Innovationsstyrelsen, FIST) wants to considerably strengthen the opportunities for Danish industry, including high-tech small and medium sized enterprises to benefit from the innovation potential provided by transfer of space technology.
FORCE Technology, takes the place as national point of contact to the ESA Technology Transfer Programme. FORCE technology has a close contact to thousands of Danish companies and FORCE Technology is already heavily involved in European space project with in the field of highly specialized production processes for nozzles for rocket engines.
