Some highlights of 50 years of Antenna Engineering, of which 35 with ESA, are reviewed with emphasis on R&D and innovation. The paper focuses on some new concepts that were successfully demonstrated, developed in industry and used for real projects. Conclusions include some possible lessons learned and trends for the future.
