What we do

Founded in 2007, NEREUS is constituted by 23 European Regions and a growing group of associate members from 9 countries in the European Union.


At the regional level, we seek to:

  • Improve the awareness and understanding of space technologies in member regions;
  • Fully exploit the potential of space applications in support of public policies for a better-informed decision-making;
  • Bridge EU space policies and programs to regional strategies, to better anchor space uses to the needs of territories and citizens;
  • Strengthen and develop local space communities;
  • Raise the profile and visibility of space-related activities and capabilities;
  • Integrate the space dimension in regional innovation and SME programs and policies.


At the interregional level, we seek to:

  • Support local politicians, entrepreneurs, researchers, and students in grasping relevant opportunities at European level;
  • Build strong European partnerships and mobilize solid initiatives in a broad range of sectors;
  • Enhance cross-sectorial exchanges amongst operators from different economic sectors, such as agriculture, digital, tourism, maritime, etc.


At the European level, we seek to:

  • Advocate the key role of regions in developing the space market, by recognizing them as drivers of the demand for space-based services and products;
  • Relay the regional dimension of European space policies and programs towards the European institutions;
  • Provide members with timely information on the latest developments of European space policies and programs related to regional space uses in relevant application domains.
