Portugal is the only European country to coordinate, through the Pedro Nunes Institute, three programs for the transfer of space technology from the European Space Agency. ESA Space Solutions Portugal allows Portuguese companies to receive technical, financial and business support to create their businesses with space technology.
In 2014, the IPN became the first Space Solutions Center, among 20 centers in Europe, to coordinate three ESA space technology transfer programs that have allowed Portuguese companies to receive technical, financial and business support to create your business with space assets.
During this period, the IPN, which also streamlines the ESA Technology Transfer Network (Technology Broker), mapped 50 technologies developed for space by Portuguese industry, which can be transferred to non-space markets, and successfully supported 10 cases of space-earth technology transfer
