Go2Space-HUBs, a reference in the generation of solid local ecosystems for entrepreneurs and start-ups

The European Go2Space-HUBs project has incubated and accelerated forty-three start-ups and contributed to the creation of five new ones, offering support to more than two hundred and fifty companies.

The space industry represents one of the sectors with the greatest potential and dynamism in the economy, due to the high degree of technology of its products and services.

At the same time, space companies contribute to the development of other sectors and to the improvement of the living conditions of citizens.

One of the major commitments of the European Union is to strengthen business culture as a growth engine for the economy at local, national and European level.

To achieve business growth and drive the creation of new emerging initiatives, strong local ecosystems are needed for adding value to start-ups and helping entrepreneurs transform their ideas into successful actions.

The European Go2Space-HUBs project, which has ended last November 30, aims to develop and grow European companies that offer technology and services to and from the space sector, ensuring the generation of value and innovation through three HUBs in Madrid (Spain), Coimbra (Portugal) and Tallinn (Estonia).

Main results

Since the beginning of the project two years ago, a wide range of local initiatives have been carried out for entrepreneurs, start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs, building bridges with the activities of the European Union, designed to ensure the creation of new start-ups and help those that already exist to grow.

Specifically, two incubation programs have been created in Coimbra and Tallinn and two acceleration programs in Madrid. Besides, three Innovation Days, three hackathons, three Demo Days, four B2B Brokerage Events, six coaching sessions and a final event have been held in which, after an extensive selection process, eleven of the companies incubated and accelerated in Go2Space-HUBs, had the opportunity to present their projects to specialized investors. For two days, all participants have been able to schedule One2One meetings, create new contacts, and much more.

Go2space-HUBs has incubated and accelerated forty-three start-ups, has contributed to the creation of five new ones, and has offered support to more than 250 companies, ensuring the creation of value and innovation through the transfer and application to other business sectors, the training and promotion of local networks that connect effectively with existing European Union initiatives.

Go2Space-HUBs continues to grow and increase its impact on the European business companies and cooperate with institutions, entities and industrial partners.

Nanoker Research participates in the “R+D+i challenges 2021” virtual event

Last Tuesday, November 16, one of the Go2Space-HUBs accelerated start-ups, Nanoker Research, has participated in the “R+D+i challenges 2021” virtual event, organized by our partner and project coordinator the UC3M Science Park.

Nowadays, a new concept of flexible industry comes into play. Likewise, the factory must look for new materials to be resilient and sustainable. Before long, different industrial sectors could face a global shortage of key materials for manufacturing and a collapse of the supply chain.

The race for new chemical materials and compounds that remedy the current deficiencies or provide them with new functions may represent a golden opportunity for the reconstruction and relocation of the chemical and mining sectors of countries like Spain.

Last November 16, took place the “R+D+i challenges 2021” virtual event that addressed these two challenges, organized by our partner and project coordinator the UC3M Science Park, where Sergio Rivera, CTO from Nanoker Rersearch, participated in the round table “Innovation and business practice”.

The Go2Space-HUBs accelerated start-up Nanoker Rersearch, produces and commercializes high performance ceramic components based on advanced ceramics, nanoceramics and nanocomposites for industrial and biomedical applications.

Space is the new technological revolution, and it is changing the way we live, work and play. The EU Space Programme, with components such as COPERNICUS (EU’s Earth Observation and monitoring programme based on satellite and non-space data) and GALILEO (EU’s Global satellite navigation and positioning system – GNSS) provides critical infrastructure and space data for the digital transformation.

Satellite data is a key enabler of digital innovations in many application areas such as Agriculture (precision agriculture and integrated farming solutions), Smart Cities (urban mapping, planning and infrastructure monitoring, urban transport, waste management, …), Renewable Energies, Health (air quality and UV radiation forecast, …) and many more.

Companies empowering innovation using Galileo and IoT technologies, and generating solutions to and from Space, have been exhaustively selected to participate at the Tech Tour Space Programme.
