Space Enterprise Community hits 1000 users
Last week saw us hit a major target in the growth of the Space Enterprise Community (SEC) as Lizzie Embleton from Glyndwr Innovations Limited became the platform’s 1000th registered user! Congratulations Lizzie!
Launched in March 2021, the SEC is a space sector community platform bringing together stakeholders that support the growth of the UK Space Ecosystem and enabling them to share ideas and opportunities while creating new connections and collaborations. We are delighted to have reached the 1000th member milestone so quickly.
Lizzie is Precision Optical Systems Group Business Manager for Glyndwr Innovations Limited (GIL)* and said “I feel the opportunity the SEC provides for UK networking and collaboration is key to developing and delivering resilient UK space capabilities allowing the UK to level up its space economy to meet the goals and visions of the National Space Strategy. With our links to academia and developing research capacity this central networking hub will allow us to develop contacts and share ideas around the UK as well as giving visibility to the many events and opportunities we may wish to be involved with.”
Existing functionality enables the sharing of events, funding opportunities and news, as well the hosting of a comprehensive directory of users and the organisations they represent – we welcome all feedback on all aspects of the platform and are always looking at ways to make it more useful to the users it seeks to support
*GIL formed following the successful delivery of ESO-ELT prototype segments which enabled the group to establish an optical polishing and metrology capability within the UK for optics up to 2m diameter in size with extremely complex surfaces. They offer opto-mechanical systems/component design, manufacture, integration, and final testing/verification and in recent years has gained experience designing and fabricating light-weighted optics for airborne imaging systems, modelled to withstand demanding operating environments.
