Space Technologies

The EILST seeks both to support activities regarding space law and technologies and to promote several initiatives in the field, such as “Space education for all”, which includes a series of lectures and education activities by our team addressing people of all ages and educational levels. Other fields that the institute has dealt with space technologies include: national defense and military telecommunications and agriculture. In relation to the environmental aspect of EILST’s activities, those include promotion of earth observation and monitoring of our natural resources, as well as for mitigation and adaptation to climate change, and especially for the prevention, preparedness and reconstruction in cases of natural disasters, under the Institute’s initiative “Gaia Protection”. Financing of new technologies and start-ups in space sector is one of the latest additions in our activities regarding space. We provide consulting and networking with both public and private sources of finance.
