History of ESA BIC Northern Germany

Aeronautics and space made in Bremen for more than 100 years: A long tradition of new businesses and new ideas in these sectors. A local aerospace club conducted the first experimental flights at the present Bremen airport site in the summer of 1910. In 1924, the aircraft makers Focke-Wulff-Flugzeugbau AG finally began operations on the ground. In 1961, the development Ring North (ERNO) was founded in Bremen in order to concentrate development tasks for space flight. To this day, orbital infrastructures and system components for human space flight are developed and produced at this site by Airbus DS and ArianeGroup. The Bremen Technology Park hosts the satellite manufacturer OHB.

Bremen, City of Space, welcomes your business idea!
