On 18 July 2019, during the last day of the economic mission to Korea, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy Étienne Schneider presented the Luxembourg space sector at the Korea Space Forum. The minister highlighted Luxembourg's key role in promoting the private space economy and the country's willingness to exchange with others.
A seminar organised in Seoul on 17 July 2019 provided 100 representatives of Korean companies with information about the Luxembourg start-up ecosystem. 8 Korean start-ups presented their projects to the Luxembourg delegation, and Luxinnovation and its Korean counterpart, KISED, signed an MoU for further collaboration.
As of 10 July 2019, Luxembourg is home to one of the world's largest data lakes for space data analytics. Spire Global, one of the world's largest space-to-cloud analytics companies, launches its open source data lake that is accessible free of charge to all start-ups, research institutes and public agencies in Luxembourg. The initiative is co-funded by the Luxembourg Space Agency.
For the first time since its launch in 2015, the acceleration programme for innovative companies managed by Luxinnovation offers tailor-made support to five start-ups active in the space sector. The selected companies will be able to access Earth observation data provided by the Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA) data centre.
The aim of the event is to present the funding opportunities in Horizon 2020 Space and to provide first-hand information on the last Horizon 2020 Space Calls. The participants will have the opportunity to be informed and discuss with the authors of the Space Work Programme 2020 and learn from their hints and tips on H2020 proposal writing. Read more
