A unique and highly specialized consortium without redundancies has been created to prove the feasibility of LWTs. It has knowledge on LWTs and plasmas (UC3M), thermionic materials (IKTS), tethers and mechanisms (UniPD), electric propulsion (TUD), solid state devices (ATD), and space product development (SENER). It has the expertise and the facilities to face confidently the extraordinary scientific and technological challenges of E.T.PACK. The mix between academia (UC3M, TUD, UniPD), a research centers (IKTS), a SME (ATD) and a large company (SENER) is appropriate to the needs of the project and will ensure results transfer to industry and promote the creation of startups and jobs.
