ActInSpace Portugal || An international innovation contest lead by CNES and ESA

Portugal will ActInSpace in 2022!
- Coimbra -

Portugal was the first ESA Space Solutions Centre in Europe, the first "one stop shop" for space downstream applications. As such, since 2014 we have been promoting the use of space technologies in Terrestrial applications.

Being IPN the first tech-based incubator in the country and one of the Top10 University Business Incubator (2019), there is no other place to do an Act In Space competition than at IPN, the ESA Space Solutions Centre in Portugal!

In 2018 we've joined this World wide hackathon, with 2 international winning teams on stage in Toulouse. In 2019 Portugal created its own space agency, there is no better timing to be at the sapce economy than now!

Join us this year, from Coimbra - at the heart of the Portuguese Centro Region - with the engagement of the ESA start-ups ecosystem as scenario and support. Get to know all the space opportunities there are in Portugal, and launch your business with us.
