 OpenCalls.Space on Climate: 8 July

Commissioned by the Netherlands Space Office, dotSPACE is launching a new initiative to support the Dutch space sector in finding relevant Horizon Europe and other European funding calls. This initiative will be organised under the name OpenCalls.Space. The project includes a portal with all relevant calls, including factsheets, and a series of information webinars. dotSPACE offers support to organisations looking to find suitable consortium partners.

Funding calls for the space sector

The funding calls that will be collected in the portal include the new Horizon Europe calls, but also calls from other sources, like the European Development Fund (EDF) and Digital Europe. Initially, the calls in the portal cover potential space applications in sectors like health, civil security, climate, energy, mobility, and bioeconomy, with more sectors being added over time.

The new open calls portal offers great opportunities for a wide variety of space organisations, including those specialising in space, Earth observation, remote sensing, and satellite navigation technology and applications.
