National Space Strategy

National space plan

The government of the Czech Republic approved on 14th OCT 2019 a new National Space Plan for the period of 2020 – 2025, which builds on the government’s effort to support the development of the space industry and excellence in science. The Ministry of Transport wants to support further growth of the space industry through a new space plan so that Czech companies can supply more complex components of satellites and launchers, such as whole instruments or satellite platforms. We also want to focus on supporting innovation, education in technical subjects, technology transfer, promoting promising ideas and their marketing and closer cooperation between universities and industry.
