Originally developed for the network of the European Space Agency (ESA), SPACE800X is a Europe-wide, free expert market that supports all branches of industry in marrying suitable companies for efficient project work as well as technology and knowledge transfer. SPACE800X provides impetus for the development and marketing of new products, introduces providers of innovative services to the producers of intelligent technology and product solutions, promotes knowledge transfer and, with its many other offers and functions, is not only an innovative new B2B platform, but also a powerful engine for the digitization and marketing of numerous industries and technologies. SPACE800X stimulates a change of thinking in the business world by providing tailor-made service packages from carefully selected top experts from business and the technology environment for a variety of project types under the slogan "A Change in thinking about Technology & Business". In this way small, medium and large companies are connected as well as all European technologies from the land, aviation and space industry. Space800X owes its name indirectly to Facebook. Facebook didn't want us to have the word "book" in our original company name. So we decided to simply translate Book with the help of the number code 800 and the X.
