Call for European low-cost space launch prize published
The European Commission has opened a call for applications to develop a European Low Cost Space Launch solution under the European Innovation Council (EIC) Horizon Prize scheme. The Prize will award €10 million to an innovative and commercially viable solution offering low-cost launch services for light satellites.
The Prize will be awarded to the contestant(s) who provide the best technical and sustainable low-cost launch services for light satellites. Extra points will be given to participants if they have already managed to launch light satellites and have a service concept for low-cost launch services (i.e. have a proven business plan with customers that pre-commit to the service concept) in place by the time of their application.
The deadline for application is 1 June 2021. More information, including the Rules for Contest, can be found on the EIC website.TOP
