Space Data for Life Seminar (during 2014 Commonwealth Games)

The ‘Space Data for Life Seminar’ was hosted at The British Business House during the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Moderated by David Parker, Chief Executive of UK Space Agency, the seminar featured key speeches from The Rt.Hon. David Willetts MP, Minister of State for Universities and Science; Stuart Martin, Chief Executive of Satellite Applications Catapult, and Craig Clark, Chief Executive, Clyde Space.

The event was an opportunity to understand how the UK’s commercial space market – currently sized at £9 billion per annum – can use its satellites and services throughout the world to help Commonwealth countries tackle pressing development challenges in innovative ways, such as increasing agricultural yield by monitoring soil needs and increasing capacity on transport networks by accurately tackling current usage. Commonwealth markets are well placed to leapfrog developed economies by adopting these space-based solutions early and reaping the efficient benefits that they provide in tackling some of the major development challenges today.

Therefore, the aim of the seminar was to:

  • Provide a platform from which to showcase UK expertise in advanced technologies, including taking data from the furthest edges of humanity and using it for everyday activities
  • Highlight UK expertise in sourcing and processing data from space and the supportive ecosystem that it facilitates; and
  • Showcase a range of companies that can help support precision agriculture, environmental monitoring and emergency response, as well as access to broadband

Following a welcome by David Parker, the Catapult’s Stuart Martin delivered a presentation about ‘The UK’s Commericial Space Market’. A panel presentation about the ‘Upstream Space Sector’ and a Q&A session then took place before a networking lunch.
