Our approach combines opportunities for growing the space sector with new technologies that address social and environmental challenges. We are focusing on:
Through a series of targeted projects, we want to develop our capability, talent, enterprise, and investment in this important and expanding industry.
We developed our strategy and approach alongside the UK Space Agency, Satellite Applications Catapult and our project partners.
These include West of England businesses, the Centre for Modelling and Simulation (CFMS), the National Composites Centre (NCC), the University of Bristol, the University of the West of England and the University of Bath.
Our vision is for the West of England to be known globally for its thriving space sector. We also want to use our work in this area to address local, national and international challenges – for society and the economy.
