SME4SPACE is a not-for-profit organisation of European (both ESA and EU Member States) Space SME Associations.

The general principle is that the members of SME4SPACE are associations representing SMEs in a particular country. A condition for the membership of SME4SPACE is that the majority of the association members are SMEs with a minimum of 5.

Some countries do not have such a dedicated SME association, and in that case the SME4SPACE Board can accept the application of regional clusters or individual companies.
Therefore, in the statutes 2 different types of Membership are foreseen:

  • Working Member (WM) for Space Associations/Clusters;
  • Individual Company Member (ICM) for Space SMEs.

Membership of SME4SPACE is free of charge.
