The future of UK space

This event will be in Zoom

The Astropolitics Working Group (AWG) invites you to a round table on the future of the UK in space. In post-Brexit Britain, the government promised a new dawn for the space sector in the UK. Although the UK was not able to retain its position in European Union space programmes following its departure from the EU, the strength of the UK space sector suggested that this was an area in which Britain could take a more unilateral path. Seeking to specialise in small satellites and launchers, the UK Space Agency and private enterprises have worked together to create a forward looking, future-proof space sector.

To discuss this, we are delighted to welcome speakers from industry and from the regulatory side of the space sector to provide an insight into current discussions in the UK:

Katherine Courtney – (ex) UK Space Agency

Sue Kee – AAC Clyde Space

Alan Thompson – Skyrora

Rosemary Whitbread – Civil Aviation Authority

Registration will close two hours before the event begins.
