Objective

The general objective of the current project is to create the necessary conditions for utilizing the existing and emerging potential of the consortium partners in Nordic-Baltic dimension for continuous and sustainable contribution in major on-going and planned European space programmes. There is urgent need in emerging space countries for national space programme. For emerging space countries it could be primarily financed by the ESA PECS Charter but also by key governmental agencies. The NordicBaltSat has mission-oriented approach to build a bridge for successful integration into space industry in Europe. As a result of this project and as an overall impact emerging space countries are expected to raise their space capacities in order to access to ESA and to have contribution to European space programmes in future. There are several specific actions contributing to achieve the objectives of the project. The main actions intend to chart space potential and create joint technology programme; to build capacity and develop cooperation between emerging space countries and ESA; and to shape national space governance systems in emerging space countries. The activities include also dissemination and exploitation. These actions will enhance the potential of FP7 States to make a continuous and sustainable contribution to major on-going and planned European space programs. Capacity building and cooperation promotion between emerging space countries and ESA will strengthen the relationship with ESA and it also gives opportunity for future cooperation and adhesion to ESA. The actions will foster dialogue and debate on space science and research with the public beyond the research community, aiming at embracing a new generation of scientists and engineers.
