Market Development Department Traineeship
Prague (Czech Republic)
The European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) provides safe and secure European satellite navigation services, promotes the commercialization of Galileo, EGNOS, and Copernicus data and services and coordinates the EU’s forthcoming governmental satellite communications programme GOVSATCOM. EUSPA is responsible for the security accreditation of all the EU Space Programme components. By fostering the development of an innovative and competitive space sector and engaging with the entire EU Space community, EUSPA contributes to the European Green Deal and digital transition, the safety and security of the Union and its citizens, while reinforcing its autonomy and resilience. In this context, the Market Development Department’s main responsibilities are related to the development of the market and the user’s uptake. The main objective is to foster the entrepreneurship and start-ups, and to support the creation of innovative applications and user technology that promote the achievement of full European GNSS adoption. These tasks shall be extended to Copernicus, GovSatCom, whilst also supporting SSA wherever required. The focus on Copernicus is on the uptake of “other users”, including, for example, business and private users. You will be joining a dynamic and operational EU Agency and have the opportunity to work with colleagues from a broad array of different backgrounds and expertise all contributing to one of the most important and ambitious projects ever undertaken by the EU. We are committed to implement the EU Space Programme and turn the EU space ambitions into a reality.
