The CSA member 5M proudly announces, that it obtained the award "Despite the Crisis 2010", achieving the highest standing in the category Manufacturing Industry.
The goal of the "Despite the Crisis" project was to identify and to promote SMEs which have succeeded in responding innovatively to the crisis, by seeking out new avenues for their business activities, and to demonstrate through authentic examples, new strategies and methods for responding to the adverse economic conditions. The promoter of this project is the Czech Chamber of Commerce, its principal professional partner PricewaterhouseCoopers Czech Republic and the main media partner the Czech Television.

18th November 2009 - Seminar on ESA technology Programmes by the Task Force Secretary
The Czech Space Alliance was able to secure a very important speaker, the Head of ESA Office for Support for New Member Countries and the secretary of the Czech-ESA Task Force, Mr. Pedro Baptista. Pedro, who spoke to an audience of 22 people, gave us a complete overview of the ESA budget structures and explained many details of all the thirteen technology programmes to which the Czech Republic subscribed. We are now much better equipped to deal with ITTs (Invitations to Tender) that attract our attention on EMITS and are aware of some of the conditions that we have to fulfil if we intend to participate. We also learnt about the global nature of space business and the need to look for partners and markets beyond the European borders. We hope to be able to attract Pedro to talk to us again at the next opportunity, so that we can start putting more pieces into the puzzle, which ESA is for us at this early stage of the Czech participation. Nevertheless, the excellent results which appear to be coming from the AO6052 opportunity show, that the Czech industry made big progress from the days of the Program for European Co-operating States (PECS). All the same, we still have a lot to learn about the specific ESA processes, which are essential for successful business in ESA technology development.

12th November 2009 - Alliance AGM 2009
This annual general meeting took place at the modern and recently expanded premises of our member Frentech in Brno. We were pleased to wellcome two new members, 5M and ANF Data. Among the positive issues that were discussed were the good results that our members achieved in the recent ESA tender AO6052. On the other side, we explored the unclear situation regarding the VAT exemption that those members who will be invoicing ESA under the AO6052 contracts require. Finally we discussed some intended actions for the next year, which should include visit to an ESA establishment.

11th November 2009 - Czech Space Alliance meets Austrian space industry
With the very helpful co-operation of the Czech embassy in Vienna and the Association of Austrian Space Industries Austrospace [www.austrospace.at], the alliance visitied Vienna for a networking seminar. The objective was mutual information of the status and focus of each country in the European Space Agency and of the experience and the track record of individual companies, with the view of looking for opportunities of co-operation in European space projects. The attendeees were wellcome by the commercial attache on behalf of the ambassador, who was out of the country. Following the presentations, the participants sampled some Czech culinary delicacies offered by the Embassy and mingled in bi-lateral conversations. Several potential areas of specific interest were discussed and these will be followed up by the involved parties to determine if they can develop into tangible joint projects. We thank our Austrian guests for their interest, and the Ambassador and his staff for providing us with such impressive venue, hospitality and professional organisation.
10th November 2009 - SME4space 2009 Conference
SME4space is a pan-European association of national space industry alliances, created with active support of ESA SME Unit and the ESA DG. Czech Space Alliance is one of the founding members. Following a conference in Rome earlier this year, this even was focused on new states. Apart from established ESA member countries' representatives from UK and Italy, EADS Astrium, and the host, the Hungarian Space Office, the conference welcomed speakers from ROSA (Rumania), Poland and Slovenia. A very marked difference was noted in the optimism of the speakers representing the government and those from the industry. The presentations demonstrated that the government support and initiative towards ESA membership shows marked differences from country to country, with Romania being the most optimistic. Our other partners in the initial round of PECS, Hungary and Poland, are looking at a prolonged continuation of PECS.
5th November 2009 - Members of the alliance invited for talks with key personnel of Thales in Cannes
Several members of the alliance were invited to Cannes to visit the installations and to hold 1-1 meetings with the managers of all key divisions of Thales. The seminar was also attended by the secretary of the ESA task force who provided some insight into the ESA tender in which many members participated. Czech Space Office presented the background of the Czech space history and achievements. We were very pleased about the interest of Thales in our small companies and thanked them also for their hospitality and a very friendly atmoshpere of the event
