InCubed releases a dedicated call for Danish companies
InCubed stands for ‘Investing in Industrial Innovation’ and is a Public Private Partnership co-funding programme run by the ESA Φ-lab that focuses on developing innovative and commercially viable products and services that exploit the value of Earth observation imagery and datasets. InCubed has a very wide scope and can be used to co-fund anything from building satellites to ground applications and everything in between as well as the development of new EO business models.
The programme works in very close cooperation with its participating Member States and can issue dedicated country-oriented calls as the one just published for Denmark.
In 2021, Danish companies and commercially focused research institutions can apply for up to 3.4 million Danish Kroner in co-funding for the development of innovative and commercially sustainable technology, products and services using Earth observation data through ESA’s InCubed programme.
The call and application form are available online on: link.
The deadline for submitting project pitches to ESA and the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education is Sunday 22 August.
Idea pitches and proposals are assessed by the Danish Agency in an open competition, based on specific criteria including growth and competitiveness, level of innovation and societal impact. Once evaluated, successful applicants will receive a Letter of Support, which is required to finalize the application process with ESA.
