BViT has been contracted to manage ESA BIC. The incubation program, that draws from the experience of both ESA and BViT in this field, offers to starters who are selected four clear benefits: Product development incentive up to € 50.000 Business development loan up to € 50.000 Technical support (in-kind) up to 80 hrs.
Heaven on earth for all large and small companies that have anything to do with space technology: the European Space Innovation Centre (ESIC) at the Space Business park in Noordwijk. Units from 50 to 500 m2 in the most sustainable building in South Holland. For start-ups there is the special ESA BIC business incubation program that not only provides access to all knowledge and test- & laboratory facilities of the European Space Agency, but also a grant of € 50,000 and a start-up loan of € 50,000. Architecture ESIC is designed by the famous architectural firm Cepezed ( www.cepezed.nl ), in 2008 named Architect of the Year.
Networking/Partnering Initiative ESA's Networking/Partnering Initiative (NPI) supports work carried out by universities and research institutes on advanced technologies with potential space applications, with the aim of fostering increased interaction between ESA, European universities, research institutes and industry. The NPI provides an important opportunity for the space sector to take advantage of potential spin-ins from new technologies from non-space sectors such as consumer electronics, material sciences and the emerging nano and microtechnology domains. By intensifying its interaction with university departments and research institutes, ESA intends to strengthen their links with space institutions and industry, encouraging them to embark upon space-related technology and make a vital contribution to meeting the long-term needs of Europe's space programme.
Ariadna Calls for Proposals The Calls for Proposals consist of announcements of specific assessment studies, in which the topic of research and tasks to be performed have been previously defined by ESA's Advanced Concepts Team and have been identified to have potential in terms of ESA's objectives. Ariadna Calls for Ideas In the frame of the Ariadna scheme, while Calls for Proposals invite interested parties to submit study proposals on very specific topics and complying with a set of well defined tasks, Calls for Ideas invite research groups to submit ideas for their own proposals relating to a theme or problem, specified by the ACT and identified as having a potential in terms of ESA's objective <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

Interaction with universities and research institutes -both in Europe and worldwide- is an important aspect of ACT activities. ACT research fellows are therefore expected to have strong links with the academic community. In order to enhance cross-fertilisation between different study areas, interdisciplinary research work is an essential part of the ACT philosophy.
