The webinar will be on March 27th at 2 p.m. CET to present ESA’s funding call

As you may well remember, last year the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Platform for Sports Innovation (EPSI) signed a Memorandum of Intent for supporting purposeful innovation in the sports industry. As part of these joint efforts, we like to invite you to a webinar where we will present ESA’s call ‘Space for Olympic Games’. The webinar will take place on March 27th at 2 PM CET. 

The Thematic Call for proposals aims at supporting new space-based services for the digital transformation and sustainability of the sport sector, specifically in the organisation, management, and further exploitation of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. It primarily targets the next Games in Europe – Paris 2024 and Milano Cortina 2026, with the ambition of providing services for the future Games as well, ensuring the continuity of the sustainability model.

Both Paris 2024 and Milano Cortina 2026 have committed to delivering net-zero events with a strong engagement of the communities, and these new challenges require investments in innovation, where space can offer ubiquitous information and connectivity in support of a punctual as well as long-term perspective. New services are required for the preparation phase before the Games, during the event itself, and in the post-event phase for the most efficient exploitation of the critical infrastructures, the safe and fun engagement of the fans, and the environmental sustainability of the events.
