oPPORTUNITIES



Slovak companies and R&D institutions can participate in project calls of the European Space Agency – ESA, within the PECS program. You can find a list of successful projects from the 6th PECS CALL on the dedicated Slovak Space Portal webpage. Slovak entities also have an opportunity to compete in specific calls with predefined contract assignments, the so-called statements of work. To view these prompts, you need to register with the ESA STAR Registration System.



The Slovak Republic has been a member of the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) since 2006. EUMETSAT calls (so-called Invitation To Tender) are open to Slovak entities. It is necessary to create a profile in the EUMITS tender system to participate in the projects mentioned below.
