ESA presents its technology to companies and research groups of PTA and UMA in the framework of the MELiSSA consortium


The University of Málaga (UMA), together with the Technology Park of Andalusia (PTA) signed last January an agreement with the consortium MEliSSA, to which the European Space Agency (ESA) belongs and established to carry out an ecosystem development program system for regenerative life support systems applicable both onshore and on long-term space missions.

In April and May, meetings were held between the PTA, UMA and ESA to detail the opportunities that, within the framework of this agreement, will arise for researchers, students and companies to work together in the development of technologies of the European Space Agency.

This past Wednesday, July 12th a meeting was held in which eight researchers from the MELissa consortium explained the new projects to be carried out in collaboration with the University of Málaga, the Technology Park of Andalucía, the European Space Agency and IPSTAR. The idea is based on the creation of a Circular Economy Incubator, located in the Green Ray building, with the objective of developing a ‘Hub of Economy’ and new spin-offs in which both social and research projects are generated through technologies provided by the European Space Agency.
