Join us for a lunchtime briefing to hear about some exciting initiatives under development in Westcott, including a 5G Step-out Centre, a new Business Incubation Centre and other planned investments that include the UK Space Agency’s National Propulsion Test Centre and Reaction Engines rocket engine test facility.
Westcott is a historic rocket testing site, located near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire and is already home to a thriving nucleus of space companies. The new initiatives on the site will offer companies access to specialist test facilities, incubation support and a vibrant environment to grow.
By focusing on propulsion, next generation resilient communication networks and autonomous systems the site will support the development of new technologies and applications for high growth markets.
This event will benefit companies – both small and large – working in the strategic areas mentioned above, academics and those interested in learning about the growth opportunities in these markets.
