CATEC continues forward with its commitment to promoting entrepreneurship and activities aimed at entrepreneurs interested in the aerospace industry. On May 18, CATEC participated in an entrepreneurs’ day at the Andalusian Center for entrepreneurship (Seville), where the European project STEPHANIE (Space TEchnology with PHotonics for market and societal challenges) was presented, an initiative that is framed in the Interreg Europe notice and involving our team.

This official European announcement promotes the exchange of experiences and knowledge of regional governments and stakeholders with the aim of improving regional development policies in strategic sectors such as the aerospace industry.

In the case of the STEPHANIE project, it brings together 8 members from 7 countries to share knowledge in order to ensure that European aerospace policy promotes R&D in the field of earth and space observation, and to develop products that have strong market potential and are able of addressing socio-environmental problems in Europe.

The project has five years of implementation (2017-2019), in which it aims to foster collaboration between different regions located in Italy, France, Czech Republic, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium and Spain, in order to address the lack of cooperation between government agencies, companies, research teams and citizens, and the lack of accessible funding for innovation actors.
