HATCH Open Meeting

The HATCH project (see homepage) is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission. Catena Space leads a number of work packages and developed the proposal having assembled the consortium.
The aim of HATCH is to create a web portal where anyone can find information about space research in Europe, whether they are a professional in the industry, an academic or a member of the general public. The portal will primarily include information on projects funded through the European Commission. In addition to the European Framework projects, the consortium plans to include projects funded by National Agencies and by the European Space Agency. This will enhance the content and make the portal more valuable to all users.
The first major milestone is coming up – the design review! As part of the process, we are holding an open meeting for anyone interested to see how the project is going, how the space portal will work, give feedback on the design, explore their own use cases, and so on.
