ASIM Science Data Centre

The Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor is a climate observatory for the International Space Station - ISS. It is developed by the ASIM consortium for ESA. The ASIM consortium is formed by Terma A/S, Technical University of Denmark, University of Bergen, University of Valencia, Polish Academy of Sciences Space Research Center, and OHB Italia. The Technical University of Denmark is leading the scientific advisory board to ESA and Terma A/S is the prime contractor under ESA for the payload development. Initial phases started in 2004 to 2009, and development started in 2010. ASIM was launched April 2nd, 2018, with CRS-14 Falcon-9/Dragon by SpaceX. The budget of ASIM is 35-40 MEUR. ASIM scinece data center (ASDC) is processing and distributing the ASIM data. More about ASDC

DTU Space

University Bergen, BCSS

University of Valencia

DTU Space uses space as a base for research and technology development in order to learn more about the Universe and Earth, to study climate and environment on Earth and create results and technologies that benefit society.

Birkeland Centre for Space Science (BCSS) is a Centre of Excellence (CoE) at the University of Bergen (UiB), that also includes scientists from NTNU and UNIS. The objective of BCSS is to understand how Earth is coupled to space.

Our university, founded over five centuries ago by the Juries of Valencia, has become a modern, public university that teaches all areas of knowledge: social, economic and legal sciences, experimental sciences, engineering, health sciences, educational sciences and the humanities.
