To achieve this vision, the National Space Strategy for Enterprise 2019-2025, is built on five strategic pillars including Investment, Strengths and Opportunities, Governance, Talent, and International Engagement. The national strategy focuses on harnessing new opportunities within the evolving international space sector, supporting the development of a highly skilled and adaptable workforce, encouraging awareness of space among the public and private sector, developing and maintaining a strategic business.


The space active industry in Ireland has demonstrated a strong level of growth, in both the number of companies securing European Space Agency (ESA) contracts as well as the value of contracts being placed with Irish based space enterprise by ESA.
