ESA BIC Switzerland aims to support space start-ups in Switzerland. Representatives decided today to extend the program by five years.
The Business Incubation Center (BIC) of the European Space Agency ESA in Switzerland will be operated for another five years. The new contract for the years 2021 to 2026 was signed and celebrated today by representatives of ESA, ESA BIC Switzerland, ETH Zurich and the Swiss Space Office.
ESA BIC Switzerland, operated by ETH Zurich, is running since 4.5 years and has supported over 40 space start-ups across Switzerland so far. The very positive feedback from the start-ups, partners and stakeholders of the Swiss start-up ecosystem convinced all involved parties to extend the program.
