Business Coaching in the space sector: applications open

Interested companies can now apply to receive expert-led business coaching provided by the EU Global Action on Space. 

The open call is open to:
•    EU-based SMEs[1] operating in the space sector (or willing to) or SMEs using space data and services (or willing to).
•    Non-EU entities legally established in one of the target regions of the Global Action[2] that want to benefit from European Union space capabilities (e.g. the Copernicus, Galileo and EGNOS programmes) through cooperation with the EU space sector.

The selected entities will receive ‘personalised’ business coaching. This coaching is given by an extensive pool of 85 worldwide experts providing technical guidance on multiple segments of the value chain. The business coaching service will provide first-hand expertise on Copernicus, Galileo and EGNOS, on their services and on their market applications, as well as counsel on the legal, administrative and cultural aspects of business internationalisation, with a view of facilitating concrete business cooperation arrangements. Country-specific market insights will also be provided to selected entities, to assist them to best adapt their business plans to the local context in more than 45 countries all over the world.

Benefits for your company

Companies that are successful in applying for business coaching will receive access to expert-led webinars and tailored networking events to help them find and meet business partners and exchange market knowledge and insights from specific business contexts.

Planned training sessions will feature weekly surveys and monthly meetings to keep track of the progress made by the participating entities and personalised development programmes drafted by the business coaches to meet every participant's expectations and needs. These sessions will be recorded and accessible on the Global Action platform until June 2024.
