The specialisation of the project has been emerged through a number of joint meetings within Kiruna Space Council or Space Kiruna to set a common course for the region to increase its attractiveness and competitive power on the global arena. Several actors within the regional innovation system have also participated in the project development as well as space companies outside the region.

These are the partners within RIT:

Project owners
Luleå University of Technology
LTU Business AB

Project Partners
OHB Sweden
Swedish Space Corporation
GKN Aerospace
SSC Nanospace
Kiruna Municipality
Arctic Business Incubator

Co-financed by
European Union – The European Regional Development Fund
Norrbottens Läns Landsting
County of Norrbotten

There are several other actors which are relevant for collaboration, both regional, national and international. The project RIT is counting on inviting several of these actors to participate and enrich the project in various ways, for example the shortly planned Swedish ESA/BIC – the national space incubator, the Graduate School of Space Technology, European Enterprise Network and ESA Broker.

The project will also be open to collaboration with other interested parties that emerge over the course of the project. Therefor we warmly welcome external actors to contact us in the project team.
