Sponsorship via the Network of Resources (NoR)

The European Space Agency (ESA) has set up the Network of Resources (NoR), which aims to stimulate the uptake of platform services. Forestry TEP is an eligible service provider in the NoR. For research and pre-commercial uses, our users can therefore apply for NoR sponsorship to cover for the costs of the platform use.

The sponsorship mechanism was revised in June 2021 in order to smoothen the process for the users. To apply for sponsored access to Forestry TEP, you can now head directly to the Sponsoring Wizards for our Platform Package and/or Support Services. Fill in information about your project, specify the requested offering, and finally submit the exported application(s) to ESA via email.

For details, please refer to the Platform Package description (at the previous NoR portal) and the Support Services description.

Please note that the Sponsorship Wizard currently only allows to select the basic package and subscription terms of one or more full years. To request a tailored offering or duration, please explain this in your application email.

We will be glad to assist you. With any questions, feel free to contact us!
