Promote R&D in the field of observation of land and space, in order to promote the development of products that have a strong market potential and with capacity to address socio-environmental problems in Europe. This is the goal of the new STEPHANIE project (Space TEchnology with Photonics for market and societal challenges), a new initiative in which the Center for Advanced Aerospace Technologies (FADA-CATEC) participates and which is part of the Interreg Europe call.

STEPHANIE brings together 8 partners from 7 areas to exchange knowledge on how to ensure that policy is designed to guarantee real benefits from space technology based on photonics, particularly in space and earth observation.

Space technologies based on photonics are considered as one of Europe’s areas of key industrial competence. They have huge potential to address a number of today’s grand societal challenges, in particular health and wellbeing, climate action and secure societies.

STEPHANIE has an execution period of five years (2017-2021), in which it aims to encourage collaboration between different regions located in Italy, France, the Czech Republic, Germany, the United Kingdom, Belgium and Spain. The ultimate goal is to address the lack of cooperation between government agencies, companies, research centers and society, and the lack of accessible funding for actors linked to the field of innovation in the space sector. It also aims to raise awareness about the opportunities for entrepreneurship and professional specialization offered by the space sector in the labour market.
