Feasibility Studies ESA Space Solutions
Closing date: 31 December 2020

Feasibility Studies provide the preparatory framework to identify, analyse and define new potentially sustainable applications and services within the ESA Business Applications programme. They have to be compliant with the following requirements: they are user driven, they benefit from the integrated use of one or more space assets and the tenderer intends to pursue a demonstration project after successful completion of the feasibility study. The Feasibility Study is likely to run at least 6 months but shall not run longer than 9 months. The duration depends on the complexity of the activity and the degree of upfront buy-in by user communities and other partners. Assuming the Feasibility Study is successful, it is expected that it evolves into a Demonstration Project, the final target being the implementation of a commercial service.
