We are excited to announce that Blubel is joining the European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre, based in Harwell. The programme helps start-ups like Blubel to successfully commercialise space technology to enhance the wellbeing of ordinary citizens.
The European Space Agency has already successfully transferred over 300 space technologies to non-space sectors for applications as diverse as cooling suits for a Formula 1 racing team, ground penetrating radar to detect cracks in mine tunnels and several health-care innovations, through its Technology Transfer Programme Office. The Office has 13 incubation centres across Europe that provide not only funding, but also technical expertise and business-development support to start-ups like ours.
We also have access to the fantastic facilities at the Harwell Campus, a world leading science, technology and business campus based in South Oxfordshire with more than 4,500 researchers, engineers and innovators from over 150 high-tech organisations, and a focal point and cluster for the UK’s rapidly growing high-tech space community.
