The Interreg Aurora funded project Boosting Space Business – the Aurora Region Space Economy Ecosystem (AuroraSpace) main objective is to boost space business and therefore enhance the space innovation ecosystem. The goal is that in the end of the project, an evolved space innovation ecosystem will exist that supports smart specialization in space and maximizes the probability for growth with new businesses created. The project consortium of university and research institutes focuses on the enhancing of the space innovation ecosystem in the Interreg Aurora programme area for new business creation. There is a need for supporting space education components both at the higher education level for SME/start-up development but also at the societal level so a broadern understanding of the importance can be accomplished.
The project has been appointed as an Operation of Strategic Importance by the Interreg Aurora Programme. This means a project which provides a significant contribution to the achievement of the objectives of the Interreg Aurora Programme.
