Password: 6u$Fcg0k

Join us for a fast-paced event exploring the future of manufacturing in space, hosted by the Satellite Applications Catapult and Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult. We will be joined by representatives from across government, industry and academia to discuss how current manufacturing could be applied in space, and how the space environment could enhance future manufacturing capabilities.

The event will also include two parallel panel sessions so you will be asked when registering to choose a session that you would like to attend. These will give you the opportunity to get involved and ask questions to the panellists, and to drive the conversation based on the collective group involvement.

This event will be held during Wales Tech Week and will also be the second in a series of Manufacturing for Space events following the successful UK Launch Vehicles webinar on 10th June.
