UKspace, the Satellite Applications Catapult and the Satellite Finance Network are jointly hosting an SME Briefing Day at 10am on Friday 4 October at Harwell.
The purpose of the event is to:
The Space Innovation and Growth Strategy (IGS) review is nearing completion. In the IGS work, there has been considerable discussion on the role of SMEs in the growth challenge and the support required to make the growth a reality. The draft findings and actions proposed by the IGS teams will be published for consultation shorlty, with the details to be published on the Space Special Interest Group website, a valuable source of information about the sector.
To complement the IGS consultation, UKspace (The UK Industry Association for Space) is taking the opportunity to examine how we can improve the SME Forum to help in the delivery of the IGS actions, especially those that will be focussed on the SME sector.
The intention is to provide a service to SMEs across the sector and increase membership to more properly represent the full scale of activity in the industry. Ukspace are also teaming up with the Satellite Finance Network (SFN) which comprises a mix of finance/banks/VC/insurance/industry associates who identify and lobby for finance and regulatory reform where needed to help growth.
