SMEs are not directly partners in this project but they are most important and will be invited to our events whenever suitable. SMEs need to be included in the space ecosystem as the development of highly specialized SMEs creates a network of suppliers which in turn leads to increased competition for companies in the space sector.
There are several other actors which are relevant for collaboration, both regional, national and international. The project RIT 2021 is counting on inviting several of these actors to participate and enrich the project in various ways, for example: the Graduate School of Space Technology, Aerospace Cluster Sweden, Big Science Sweden, European Enterprise Network and ESA Broker.
The project will also be open to collaboration with other interested parties that emerge over the course of the project. Therefor we warmly welcome external actors who are interested in collaborationg with us, to contact the project team.
