An engaging B2B website for the European Space Agency fully dedicated to technology development: The TEC directorate website
How many European industries and universities are aware that ESA owns the most comprehensive test facilities to boost technology innovation and that these facilities are open to external customers? How many know about the incredible funding opportunities and the engineering consultancy available to support European innovation? To fill these gaps and much more, Remedia gave life to one of the most challenging web projects ever built in its experience: The TEC directorate website – technology.esa.int
With more than 1000 employees, the TEC directorate is the greatest directorate of the Agency. Its activities cover all the branches of technology development, from its conceptualisation (years before its development) to testing, till the validation of all its quality standards. Unfortunately, at the start of this project, all these contents were spread on the main ESA website. Moreover the more technical information, for which a company or an Institutional interface such as a Member state, was in search of, was fully absent.
Remedia replies to this request by giving life to one of its most big web project, made of hundreds of pages, massive interaction, clear content structure and easy navigation, and by creating a unique point of reference for all the potential audiences who intend to discover the multitude of opportunities provided by ESA to build new technologies.
The development of such a big web project through which presenting – in a clear and engaging way – all these massive numbers of contents required very hard work, dedication, passion and high-professionalism to manage the right development steps and priorities. For this reason we started our work by designing the website content structure, and then we moved on with the definition of all the functionalities the website would need to meet its goals: acquire new customers and engage them to take an immediate action. Each page has been built to provide valuable contents and provide a direct contact with the TEC experts. Original 3D images have been also designed to give a very unique identity to the Directorate and enhance the value of the most important topics proposed.
Thanks to this solution and the careful design of the structure and layout, the website provides fluent navigation among different types of resources, texts and info.
Last, but not least, the website is fully responsive and browsable from any browsers, except from IE.
