SME + Midcap Days 2024 - SME Registration


The 2nd edition of the SME + Midcap Days, including the SME Forum, will take place at ESA Headquarters in Paris on 8–9 April 2024.

SMEs from ESA Member States, Associate States and Cooperating States are now invited to register to attend the in-person event.

On day 1, ESA representatives will share updates and information with the industrial community and will open the floor for discussions. In addition, a meeting between SMEs and Midcaps is foreseen.

On day 2, the well-established annual SME and Midcap Fora, led by the Directorate of Commercialisation, Industry and Competitivenss, will take place. The two fora are industry consultation processes during which industry participants are invited to share their views and give feedback about topics which affect their companies’ work with ESA and in the space sector in general. Consolidated comments and reactions provided will feed into the next ESA High Level Forum as well as future considerations about the activities and policies of the Agency.
