ESA is on the forefront of the develeopment and research of autonomous robotic vehicles. We will visit their Robotic lab to learn about their missions, how robots are used at ESA, and how they see the development of robot technology in their work. Make sure to join this both exclusive and unique tour. For registration, please contact Jaimy Siebel at JS@robobusiness.eu.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world.
ESA is an international organisation with 22 Member States. By coordinating the financial and intellectual resources of its members, it can undertake programmes and activities far beyond the scope of any single European country.
What does ESA do?
ESA’s job is to draw up the European space programme and carry it through. ESA’s programmes are designed to find out more about Earth, its immediate space environment, our Solar System and the Universe, as well as to develop satellite-based technologies and services, and to promote European industries. ESA also works closely with space organisations outside Europe.
Where is ESA located?
ESA has sites in several European countries, but the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, is the largest. ESTEC is our technical heart – the incubator of the European space effort – where most ESA projects are born and where they are guided through the various phases of development.
