Space2Waves is the continuation of the SpaceWave project, which has successfully developed an internationalization strategy to accelerate the Earth Observation (EO) technologies global deployment in Blue Growth and support European SMEs’ competitiveness. Four countries have been identified with the highest potential for European SMEs: Australia, Canada, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The main objective of Space2Waves is to promote access to international markets for European SMEs involved in the development and provision of EO products and services in support of Blue Growth.
