Luxembourg creates European space resources centre ESRIC

Paris, 19 November 2020. – Luxembourg partners with the European Space Agency (ESA) to create the European Space Resources Innovation Centre (ESCRIC), the Luxembourgish Government announced.

ESRIC wants to partner with public and private international players “to create a hub of excellence for space resources in Europe”, the Government and the Centre said in a joint announcement.

“Unique of its kind, ESRIC aims to become an internationally recognised centre of expertise for scientific, technical, business and economic aspects related to the use of space resources for human and robotic exploration, as well as for a future in-space economy.”

The ESCRIC agreement was signed by Luxembourg’s Ministry of Economy, which supervises the Luxembourg Space Agency (LSA), the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), and ESA.

The creation of ESRIC is part of Luxembourg’s initiative SpaceResources.lu, which was launched in 2016 to develop the exploration and use of space resources.
