Since 2006, the NVR has three corporate memberships for companies and institutes involved in Dutch space travel. As of July 1, 2014, a new category of business membership for start-ups has been launched to meet the needs of starting space companies. The contribution amount depends on the size of the organization and is linked to the number of employees who are active in space travel.
The NVR now has 30 company members. They make use of the network possibilities that the NVR offers them. For example, organizations can use the NVR for their employees resp. students organize theme days or have them organized, and promote their brand awareness through the NVR means of communication (the magazine Ruimtevaart, website, social media). Company members of the NVR are active in the sectors of research, high-tech systems (upstream), satellite data (downstream) and education and education (museums).
