A summary of the event submitted by Ms.Melinda Minkó of HUNSpace:
On November 10, 2009, the second European Space SME conference was held in Budapest hosted by the Hungarian Space Cluster, with the presence of representatives of many European industrial actors.
The goal of the Workshop was to make a point of SME status in space projects in Europe with a special focus on new entrant countries.
The Workshop was sponsored by the Hungarian Space Cluster and by the National Office for Research and Technology of Hungary.
The outcome of the Workshop was relevant both in terms of the maturity reached by the local space industries and the needs for a true support policy from EU and ESA for Space SMEs.
Among the attendees, beside the representatives of SME4SPACE, also executives from EADS Astrium as testimonials of large system integrators interest in a strategic involvement of SMEs in large space projects. All the presentations will be available at the following link
The next SME4SPACE Conference will be held in spring 2010 in Belgium."
