  • Future space ecosystems: on-orbit operations, preparation of orbital demonstration mission
  • Technologies and generic building blocks for Electrical Propulsion
  • End-to-end Earth observation systems and associated services

Reinforce EU capacity to access and use space

  • Reusability for European strategic space launchers - technologies and operation maturation including flight test demonstration
  • Low cost high thrust propulsion for European strategic space launchers - technologies maturation including ground tests
  • New space transportation solutions and services
  • Multi sites flexible industrial platform and standardised technology for improving interoperability of European access to space ground facilities

Evolution of Copernicus services

Space entrepreneurship ecosystem (including "New Space" and start-ups) and skills

  • Education and skills for the EU space sector

Targeted and strategic actions supporting the EU space sector

  • Space technologies for European non-dependence and competitiveness
  • Space science and exploration technologies

The development of applications for Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus will be addressed through calls under the responsibility of the EUSPA (European Union Space Programme Agency). The call opening dates are not fixed yet. The COM believes it might be opened with the other Space calls but it is not yet known if both years (2021/2022) will be opened at the same time.

Topics will comprise:

Innovation activities for improved EGNSS operation and service provision

Development of applications for Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus


  • EGNSS and Copernicus applications fostering the European Green deal
  • EGNSS applications for Safety and Crisis management
  • EGNSS applications for the Digital Age


  • EGNSS applications for Smart mobility
  • Public sector as Galileo and/or Copernicus user
  • Copernicus downstream applications and the European Data Economy
  • Large-scale Copernicus data uptake with AI and HPC
  • Designing space-based downstream applications with international partners
  • GOVSATCOM Service developments and demonstrations

Topics managed by the EUSPA and ESA will be addressed under “Other Actions” in the Work Programme.
