PRODEX (PROgramme de Développement d'Expériences scientifiques) offers institutions and industry the chance to work on ESA experiments. The programme works to help countries to get returns on their investments, and to promote scientific and industrial excellence and competitiveness. PRODEX was created in June 1986 when several ESA Member States were limited in the funding of experiments and instruments for ESA missions that their universities and other scientific institutions wanted to be involved in. It has grown to fulfil the role of co-ordinating experiment development and awarding, implementing and monitoring industrial and institute contracts for a wide range of experiments or space scientific hardware development.
