ESA Business Incubation Centre Harwell

The space you need to get your business idea off the ground. For any start-up, spin-out or entrepreneur, coming up with a great idea is just the first step. Turning it quickly and effectively into a winning commercial offering can be an even bigger challenge.

The European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre Harwell (ESA BIC Harwell) helps you to meet this challenge, enabling you to leverage the funding, support, skills and facilities you need to transform space technology and systems into a successful, vibrant, non-space related business.

The next deadlines for ESA BIC applications in 2016 are 9th May and 17th October.
