EICN MENA Space Means Business – at the UAE Space Agency

Space Means Business is a UAE government campaign to build private-sector involvement in the UAE’s space sector. And this event will help business leaders to identify the commercial opportunities presented by the Emirates Mission to the Asteroid Belt and further space missions, which are backed by the AED3bn UAE Space Fund.

More than 50% of contracts tendered to support the EMA will be awarded to UAE-based private-sector companies. There is no part of this mission that is not open to participation from UAE-based businesses in a wide variety of fields, including mechanical and optical engineering, industrial design, material sciences, subsystem assembly, software development and systems integration and mission operations.
