Core Competitiveness

ESA's ARTES Core Competitiveness programme aims to maintain and improve the capability and competitiveness of European and Canadian industry in the satcom market through the development of satellite communications technology and services.

It provides support throughout the technology development process; from the initial idea to a fully-fledged product, system or service.

The programme provides the funding, multi-disciplinary expertise, business knowledge, opportunities for small and medium enterprises and for international consortia, and contacts needed to turn the concept into reality.

ARTES Core Competitiveness combines two previously independent ARTES elements: ARTES Competitiveness & Growth (industry initiative) and ARTES Advanced Technology (ESA initiative).
