The set-up of an ESA BIC in Austria is fully supported by the Austrian delegation through the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). The objective of FFG is to generate a start-up community of space spin-offs by setting up an ESA BIC in Austria, closely with the academic and business community. Also, FFG expects that ESA BIC Austria will be tasked with the handling of the Integrated Application Promotion (IAP) Programme’s Ambassador Platform (AP) and the procurement of small application (SmallApps) activities. The objective of these activities is to identify and prepare promising projects for consortia that can then apply for the full IAP activity. The overall goal of FFG is to cluster all space application activities in Austria in order to create more synergies between them, whilst at the same time to achieve economy of scope, saving on networking and operating costs. ESA is requested to organise a national limited tender for Austrian business innovation organisations and to select the most appropriate bidder to implement and manage the ESA BIC/IAP AP Austria for the next 5 years.
