Székely Family and Co. Llc. proudly announces that is has submitted a joint bid with Sagax Communications Ltd. to one of the European Space Agency tenders with the aim to extend Hungarian participation in various space industry activities. Since Hungary has joined the European Space Agency (ESA) as a full member in 2015, there is a great opportunity to develop Hungarian participation in terms of the industrial aspects of the European Space Market. As a full member, Hungary is by definition entitled to a certain share of involvement in such large ESA programs like ARTES, presuming it can muster companies’ appropriate competences and capabilities. Hungary does have several space companies with long heritage in space research and exploration as well as a few companies also present in the international space industry. However, those few companies are by far not covering the opportunities, thus actively expanding newspace companies with an appetite for risk and not being afraid of competition may quickly seize this target segment. This is more than pure business, it is a national economic interest: as Hungary contributes to the ESA budget, it is reasonable to expect Hungarian companies to return this ’investment’ through taxes and social contribution preferably with a top-up.
