The Space Programmes Unit (SPU) of the Research and Innovation Center Athena has as principal objective to foster participation of Greece in all aspects of the country's membership in the European Space Agency (ESA) and assist the country's competitiveness by advancing the use of leading-edge technologies in space engineering and science in the national, European and international domains.

The principal goal of SPU is to marshal the high technology, intellectual, entrepreneurial, and institutional resources available within Greece in pursuit of programs and projects relating to space activities that have the potential of high payoff in the technical, defence, economic, and commercial arenas.
