It is an industry-led and user-driven innovation cluster active in the field of Space Technologies and Applications in Greece. It brings together more than 70 Greek businesses, academic and research centers and other private and public sector organisations and the civil society. The si-Cluster underpins industrial and scientific excellence in specific fields of space technologies and applications, respecting the diverse missions, roles and responsibilities of industrial members, the academic and research community, the public administration and end users. It operates within an active quadruple helix for the benefit of the whole space ecosystem and other important sectors of the economy, such us Agriculture, Transport, Environment, Security, Defence, Telecoms, etc. The si-Cluster members have been recognized internationally for the innovative technologies and solutions they develop and offer. They address international markets and have achieved significant successes, “opening up” another sector of activity for the Greek economy.

Its cooperative structure and its successful operating model guarantee success and synergies in an extremely demanding technological sector. The important infrastructures, the international network of collaborations and the close links with actors of the wider innovation ecosystem have created a strong framework for the development of competitive advantages.
