Project Reference

It is a 4-year project (Coordination Action) under the ERA-NET scheme of the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission.

ERA-STAR Regions started in November 2004 with the objective to co-ordinate R&D management and funding activities in the field of applications related to GALILEO, GMES, and other technologies (such as satellite technologies, launcher concepts, human space flight, exploration and exploitation of space, etc.) in the participating Regions/Countries, with the final goal of launching joint calls for proposals.

The ERA-STAR Regions network links research programme managers from these regions with the objective of building the transregional critical mass in RTD capacity needed to meet the growing opportunities that space programmes and space-based services offer.
