Dual-use in technology means that it can be used for both peaceful and military purposes. In this context, Sky-Watch has been invited by the European Commission to explain how H2020 funded project helps his business strategy.
“AGILE provided Sky-Watch with the opportunity – and funding – to trial this new technology, without the need to search for commercial investors who tend to be risk-averse. Being part of a consortium also put Sky-Watch in contact with major companies, providing credibility, knowledge, and opportunities for further collaborative efforts.
Participation in Horizon 2020 gave us access to new technology and meant that we could provide consortium partners with something they did not have. ”
Michael Messerschmidt, Chief Business Development Officer, Sky-Watch
