As a reminder
The "Space Tour 2021" call for projects was launched in April 2021 for startups and SMEs developing solutions in line with the theme "Space applications: a springboard for the economy and society".
33 companies have been selected to receive a CNES contract with funding from the DGE and will present their project during the 11 Pitchdays organized in the 11 participating regions.
For each Pitchday, a jury (CNES, Region, DREET) will determine which project will receive a €100K (1st prize), €75K (2nd prize) or €50K (3rd prize) contract. Additional regional funding for an amount of more than 800 K€ is added to these national prizes.
This call for projects is operated by the CNES within the framework of the section C of the space recovery plan proposed by the General Directorate of Companies. The operation provides significant assistance to companies in the space applications sector in the face of the negative consequences of the health crisis on their activities. It is fully in line with our objectives of supporting national space actors and promoting satellite solutions.
