This webinar on Space for Safety & Defence is organised by the Netherlands Space Office NSO in collaboration with dotSPACE. This webinar is part of a series of webinars on open funding calls for the Dutch and European space (data) sector.

This webinar will showcase selected new funding calls from Horizon Europe and other sources, like the European Development Fund (EDF) and Digital Europe. We have selected calls that are relevant for organisations working with space technology, space data and space applications.

This edition will focus on funding opportunities that are already open or about to open soon, around opportunities related to Horizon Europe category ‘Safety & Defence’.

During the webinar, we will look at opportunities for collaboration between Dutch and European organisations that are active in space, space data, and space applications.

*The main part of the webinar (speakers’ presentations, review of selected open calls, as well as 1-minute pitches) will take 45 minutes to 1 hour (16:00-17:00 CET). After this we keep the Zoom meeting open for networking.
