PRODEX Programme

The PROgramme for the Development of scientific EXperiments (PRODEX) is a programme of the European Space Agency (ESA) to which Belgium, as member state of ESA, has been participating since 29 June 1988.

The purpose of PRODEX is to provide (co-)funding for the development and exploitation of scientific instruments and experiments in the framework of the space programmes of ESA, as well as of other space agencies. Four scientific areas are covered: space sciences, space exploration, Earth observation and life and physical sciences in space.

One of the major objectives of PRODEX is to foster collaboration between scientific institutes and industrial companies. The overall responsibility of a project must be assumed by an institute in order to ensure that the objectives remain driven by science.

Funding can be provided during the full life cycle of a scientific instrument or experiment for scientific development, technical development and services, operational activities and data exploitation.
