In-space assembly and maintenance robotics for future space ecosystems

EU-RISE is a 24 month research & innovation action funded by the European Union. The project draws upon the maturation of space robotics that has paved the way for new capabilities for in-space servicing, assembly and manufacturing (ISAM).

With EU-RISE, budgeted with 2.3m€, Europe aims to analyse the market for ISAM services, create demo scenarios, and foster open-source processes for ongoing innovation.

Bringing together 8 partners from 7 countries, the project aims to to define an end-to-end demonstration scenario, do a market analysis of in-space services, assembly and manufacturing, and create two reference scenarios for analysis.

EU-RISE contributes to Europe’s positioning as a leader in the global space industry. The establishment of a European ISAM capacity and defining the future space ecosystem will have a significant impact. By developing and implementing these new capabilities, Europe can maintain its competitiveness on the global stage, create new jobs, and drive economic growth through increased investment in the space industry. Furthermore, the development of a sustainable space ecosystem will have a positive impact on the environment, reducing the amount of waste and pollution in space and contributing to a more sustainable and cleaner space environment.
