What is KIS?

KISPLATFORM is a horizontal support measure of the KIS Innovation Platform (KIS-IP) that will guarantee the effective promotion of the results of selected KIS sector projects. It will aim to facilitate the coordination of the current three sectoral initiatives:

KIS4SAT - downstream satellite applications

ACHIEVE MORE - ICT/software

KIS-PIMS - Renewable Energy technologies

kis ip
KIS IP

The KISPLATFORM will foster technological and non technological innovation in services whilst taking into account the dynamic interconnections between research, skills, entrepreneurship, finance and clusters and addressing the needs of high growth ventures active in KIS

kis ip1
KIS IP

By delivering a service package (communication platform, dissemination, marketing tools) to high growth ventures active in the 3 specific sectors, the overall goal is to open doors to valuable partnerships and to foster faster growth.

KIS IP

The KISPLATFORM will:

Establish and further promote a European Repository of knowledge and better practices on technological and organisational/business model innovation in services

Develop a handbook on the facilitation of organisational innovation in services

Create the "Club of 100" - a pan-European business community of 100 leading young innovative KIS companies with high growth potential

Organise annual European KIS Contests as well as present European innovation/service awards

Offer an online platform that serves as means for active interaction among KIS players and the investor audience

KIS4SAT………..

KIS in satellite downstream applications

kis4sat sector
KIS4SAT sector

The KIS4SAT project addresses the specific features of economic activities which make use of one or a combination of the following satellite capabilities:

Satellite telecommunications (SATCOM)

European Satellite Systems for Navigation, Timing, or Geo-Positioning (SATNAV)

Earth observation satellites (EO)

satellite downstream applications
Satellite downstream applications

Broadband telecommunication and info-mobility services

Environmental monitoring, security management and emergency services

Route guidance, goods tracing and tracking, fleet management, location based services

the consortium
The Consortium

A group of complementary organisations involved in the stimulation and the support of innovative high growth SMEs in the area of satellite downstream applications.

consortium rationale
Consortium Rationale

Direct access to a large number of innovative SMEs and entrepreneurs in the field of satellite downstream applications

Strong links with the major European Knowledge Creation Centres in 4 European space leading countries (France Germany, Italy, UK)

Strong links with space specialised experts in Incubation & Innovation management

Access to finance

networks
Networks

ENCADRE An informal European Platform to support the creation of a market strategy in the field of space and Galileo derived applications.The ENCADRE network – 20+ regional clusters in the field of satellite and space technologies based applications (initiated by CASTLE, FINANCESPACE & INVESAT)

ESINET is the European Network of Space Incubatorswhich share the mission to act as a catalyst for the launch of new innovative companies capitalising on space developments; and to support its members in stimulating entrepreneurship and SME development. Supported by ESA and managed by EBN

And others……..join us!

field of satellite applications in kis
Field of satellite applications in KIS
  • 80% of SMEs involved in satellite applications are KIS related
  • Numerous barriers to innovation :
    • A fragmented adding value chain
    • The need to build networked based business models
    • A lack of critical mass for the services proposed by SMEs (usually, regional markets are targeted)
    • Difficulty to protect the innovations
    • Lack of standards
    • The raising of private money is fraught with difficulties when the space programmes are public dependent.
kis4sat objectives
KIS4SAT objectives

O1To assess the research, skills and knowledge components required by KIS ventures in the field of satellite based applications

to share these needs with universities, knowledge centres and business schools

in order to help these KIS ventures become more innovative

kis4sat objectives1
KIS4SAT objectives

O2 To instigate cross fertilization of expertise among and inside 25 Regional Clusters

to promote KIS ventures added value,

to encourage networking and partnership building among the various players,

to foster the building of European critical mass services

to support the development of Lead Markets in Europe for Satellite Based services

kis4sat objectives2
KIS4SAT objectives

O3 By adapting existing self assessment tools already developed in previous and ongoing EC initiatives such as PAXIS, Gate2Growth and Europe Innova and compiling them with the Satellite Applications knowledge,

to make the KIS platform the market place where  SMEs and entrepreneurs can find the relevant business support packages they need to accelerate their innovation processes and their business development in the field of satellite-based service applications

kis4sat objectives3
KIS4SAT objectives

O4To test and validate value added business support packages

with 250 high growth KIS ventures

or innovation intermediaries

focusing on the following areas : access to finance, access to clusters and research / business partners, access to business coaching & advice, access to market or research knowledge

kis4sat objectives4
KIS4SAT objectives

O5To deliver to a wider audience of public and private stakeholders,

ranging from universities, incubators, clusters managers, regional policy makers and investors

a “KIS4SAT platform toolbox”

which will further support and stimulate the innovation and growth processes at stake in the satellite applications area.

kis4sat objectives5
KIS4SAT objectives

O6To test an exit strategy through robust sustainable mechanisms (such as innovation vouchers/free of chargefor KIS companies) to be developed public-private partnerships with the Regional clusters

to ensure continuation of the KIS4SAT platform after completion of the EC funded project
