The Space Bridge Framework Arrangement was signed on Tuesday 23 February 2021 to increase bilateral space sector collaboration and grow jobs across the industry.
Supported by the UK Space Agency (UKSA) and the Department for International Trade (DIT) in the United Kingdom, and Austrade and the Australian Space Agency in Australia, the Space Bridge Framework Arrangement focuses on areas such as:
• Government-to-government collaboration on space programs and technology
• Trade and investment, including commercial contracts and collaboration
• Research and education
• Regulations (trade related)
As part of the UK-Australia Space Bridge, UKSA and DIT will be running six briefing webinars, each week profiling one of the UK’s Devolved Administrations and English regions from Tuesday 15th June until Tuesday 20th July.
These sessions are running in parallel to the Space Bridge State & Territory Roadshow by Austrade, from May 19th until June 30 , with support from the States and Territories and its partners at the Australian Space Agency, UK Space Agency (UKSA) and UK Department for International Trade (DIT).
This webinar on 13th July will be hosted by the North East Centre of Excellence (Catapult) to promote the key strategies, strengths, and capabilities of the space sector for the region, with the aim of reaching out to a wide-ranging audience, including UK and Australian investors and collaborators from both industry and academia.
Following the presentation/discussion, a short Q&A will be held to answer any questions or suggestions you may have regarding the Arrangement.
The intended audience for this event is UK and Australia Industry, Academia and Government.
