Space to Prosper - Speakers

The global space economy is still recognised as one of the fastest growing sectors. It is constantly evolving, frequently disrupted, new businesses are being created, and record levels of private investment have been logged this year. Governments are also committing large space budgets, particularly in the defence domain.

 

This conference theme will explore the UK’s refreshed strategy for space sector growth, hearing from leaders across industry, academia and government about the challenges and opportunities for the UK space economy. Can the UK space sector realistically meet its target of achieving 10% of the global space economy by 2030?
