Welcome to the ESA Business Incubation Centre Harwell

The space you need to get your business idea off the ground.

For any start-up, spin-out or entrepreneur, coming up with a great idea is just the first step. Turning it quickly and effectively into a winning commercial offering can be an even bigger challenge.

The European Space Agency Business Incubation Centre Harwell (PDF - 996kB - link opens in a new window) (ESA BIC Harwell) helps you to meet this challenge, enabling you to leverage the funding, support, skills and facilities you need to transform space technology and systems into a successful, vibrant, non space related business.

The next deadlines for ESA BIC applications in 2016 are 9th May and 17th October.
