The BSGN has a global outlook but is primarily focused on supporting entities from Member States that are subscribed to ESA’s European Exploration Envelope Programme (E3P):

  • Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Slovenia and Canada.

ESA may in general be able to support you with respective mechanisms if you / your company are based in an ESA Member State. If you are not based in an ESA Member State, you can consider to partner with an entity from an ESA Member State and apply as consortium. Note that the prime contractor vis-a-vis ESA always has to be from an ESA Member State.

Good to know: ESA has mandatory and optional programmes. All ESA Member States subscribe to the mandatory programmes while only a subsection of ESA Member States subscribe to the optional programmes. We therefore recommend interested entities to look for programmes and associated support mechanisms that are supported by their respective country prior to applying in order to identify the most suitable programme.

The BSGN focuses on supporting commercially-motivated ideas and projects that are making use of exploration-related infrastructure and technology with the aim to provide commercial services and products.

For more information on the scope please look at BSGNThe Space Environment and Destinations.
