Thales Alenia Space UK (TAS-UK) and UKspace held a supply chain event at the European Centre for Space Applications and Telecommunications (ECSAT) in Harwell. This event was supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult and the European Space Agency (ESA).

The objective of this event was to explore joint business opportunities and to help SMEs to gain an insight into the TAS-UK supply chain process. This was an interactive day with 1-2-1 sessions with the TAS-UK procurement team. In addition, there was an overview of the ESA co-funding programme “ARTES Core Competitiveness Initiative” and the “Entry programme” for newcomers.
