DLR - Institute of Aerospace Systems of the German Aerospace Centre in Bremen

Space flight is of great economic and strategic importance for Bremen – as indeed it is for Germany and Europe. In addition to the public-sector funding for space flight from the Federal Government, the European Union (EU) and the European Space Agency (ESA), the commercial space flight market is also of substantial importance: jobs are created not just in the space flight industry, but also in the related markets which are based on space flight technology and the applications made possible by it, or on findings from space flight research.

Space flight is of great importance for Bremen in particular: the city is one of the leading aerospace areas in Germany. Space flight is a high-technology sector with a host of highly-skilled jobs, especially in research and development. In order to withstand the international competition, it is important to keep up to date with the latest advances. This requires an outstanding scientific environment, both in Bremen’s higher education and research establishments, and in the city’s space flight industry. It is necessary to add additional skills to the existing good scientific environment, so that new markets can safeguard jobs and create new ones.
