IPSTAR is the technology transfer agent for the European Space Agency MELiSSA research program. The acronym MELiSSA is short for 'Micro-Ecological Life Support Alternative' and is a development program of a microbiological and horticultural plant based closed loop ecosystem. The system is used for regenerative life support systems for long-term space missions to lunar bases or flights to Mars. IPStar’s mission is to stimulate and facilitate the commercialization of primarily know-how and intellectual property generated within the MELiSSA consortium consisting of an international group of renowned universities and institutes and to enhance and foster linkages between the MELiSSA research community and industry.
If you tick two options within one filter parameter, then this is treated as an "or" search, meaning either of them could be true. But if you tick two filters for two different parameters then this is treated as an "and" search, i.e. both parameters must be true to return a result. If anything is unclear about how the filter and search combinations work, just contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can run the country filter for the projects by clicking on “Select countries”. However, if you want to combine the country filter with another filter parameter, then you need to operate the “apply filter” button twice: You need to firstly filter by country, then secondly filter by the other filter parameter(s) (or vice versa). To run the filter you need to click on the “apply filter” button.
