Electric propulsion


The objective is to propose a continuation of the Programme Support Activity (PSA), for the implementation of the Electric Propulsion and Space robotics technologies Strategic Research Clusters (SRCs) in Horizon 2020. The overall budget for such SRCs could be in the range of several tens of millions of euros and should achieve a full in-orbit validation of the electric propulsion systems and Space robotic applications developed at pre-commercial level during the SRCs. This validation is planned to be achieved in the 2021-2027 period.

Further information on the concept of a Strategic research cluster in Horizon 2020 is available at

The PSA consortia will ensure the coordination and necessary exchange of information and knowledge between the different projects within the Electric Propulsion and Space robotics technologies SRCs, respectively, by providing:
