1. Who we are:

InnORBIT is a coordination project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. InnORBIT aims at empowering innovation intermediaries (clusters, digital innovation hubs, SME associations, etc.) to run local initiatives for incentivising space innovation, assuming the role of space hubs within their innovation ecosystems. More specifically, InnORBIT will: (i) co-design and develop capacity building and business support programmes to empower innovation intermediaries to organise and run sustainable local initiatives for supporting space innovation; (ii) organise effective and sustainable initiatives for supporting space innovation and successfully engage entrepreneurs, start-ups and scale-ups, including SMEs not traditionally involved in it; (iii) deliver business support services to entrepreneurs, start-ups and scale-ups to drive the commercialisation of their space-enabled solutions and accelerate their growth in tandem with EU actions. In parallel to these activities, InnORBIT will develop concise business plans for its initiatives and will monitor and evaluate their performance and impact to deliver replication guidelines and policy recommendations for better support frames. The partners of the InnORBIT consortium, listed below, process certain types of personal data for the purposes of the project.
