I’m presenting on a panel the last day of this conference and am looking forward to it.
From the UK Space Conference 2015 Events page:
UK SPACE CONFERENCE 2015:
Held every two years, the UK Space Conference is the unmissable gathering for the entire UK space community; bringing together the space industry, users of space-based services, entrepreneurs, academia and government.
SPACE-ENABLED FUTURES is the theme for this flagship conference in 2015, which will focus on the impact satellite services and innovation, research and exploration in space is having on the wider economy, society and education.
A content rich programme has been shaped offering important insights for businesses. This is reinforced by dedicated sessions for research, technology, space environments and biomedicine, promoting cutting-edge innovations and capabilities. In addition, an outreach programme and the ESERO-UK teacher conference will also take place.
The format is designed to enable the space industry, researchers, entrepreneurs, satellite service users and government to come together to discuss Space-enabled Futures; and there are enhanced opportunities for networking and discussion.
“With the UK space industry firmly focused on achieving an ambitious 20-year target of capturing 10 per cent of the projected £400 billion global space market by 2030, the UK Space Conference provides a unique opportunity for everyone interested in capturing a slice of the success of this key sector to come together to share ideas, network and plan for the future.”
Greg Clark, Former Minister for Universities, Science & Cities
The aim of the UK Space Conference 2015 is to be inclusive and forward looking:
