Knowledge lies at the heart of every groundbreaking innovation. It drives transformative changes in our understanding of ourselves, the world and outer space.Β 

We leverage the cross-sectoral knowledge available in our ecosystem to help partners create societal impact. Our community combines the knowledge and experience of world-class academic and applied sciences experts (Leiden-Delft-Erasmus universities, InHolland and the ITC Faculty at University of Twente amongst others), leading research institutes like SRON, TNO, NLR, KNMI and government organisations such as Provincie Zuid-Holland and InnovationQuarter. With the Galileo Reference Centre and ESA ESTEC’s 3000+ high tech professionals on-campus, NL Space Campus offers a unique environment where the knowledge of space entrepreneurs, young professionals, researchers and institutes comes together.


By (co-)organising events where you can connect with our community, we facilitate the chance encounters that so often spark new partnerships and ideas. Whether you’re looking for talent or want to connect with startups or leading organisations in space: uncover new opportunities at our hackathons, curiosity series, monthly NL Space Campus Network & Drinks or other community events.



Through various projects we bring together partners from within and outside the space ecosystem to form close collaborations. By combining their cross-sectoral knowledge and experience, we accelerate space data innovations and help increase their positive impact on society. Become an active partner of our ecosystem and contact us to join or initiate a new project!Β
