THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar discusses the future for the UK space industry - bringing together stakeholders with key policymakers.
Delegates will consider how measures set out in the Industrial Strategy White Paper can best work to support the sector’s growth - including proposals to develop skills, regional clusters, and the commercialisation of research - and will discuss what further initiatives are needed from policymakers to support the industry as work begins on the National Satellite Test Facility.
They will also examine key questions ahead for the development of commercial spaceports and spaceflight, in the context of the introduction of the Space Industry Bill - which seeks to develop legal and regulatory frameworks to enable new space technologies to operate safely in the UK.
Further sessions will assess the potential impact of Brexit on the sector’s global competiveness, and how to allocate funding most effectively - following the two recent announcements - the £50 million boost from the Industrial Strategy to support the UK’s space launch programme and the £3 million awarded to support space exploration research.
