This is a workshop organised by UKspace and the Satellite Applications Catapult to shine a light on the contribution Europe can make to the goals of the Space Growth Action Plan and specifically how companies can get the most from European financial mechanisms which are currently untapped by the UK space sector. The programme will cover new EC initiatives such as the European Fund for Strategic Investments (“Junker Fund”), the InnovFin fund and EU structural funds. It will also lift the veil on vital information channels such as the European Investment Advisory Hub. Opportunities will be provided to talk to key officials and experts.
The day is aimed at any company associated with the space sector and is part of the UKspace SME Forum programme of activities. There will be no charge for attendance and lunch will be provided.
