Knowledge Exchange Fellowships

The Satellite Applications Catapult has established the Knowledge Exchange (KE) programme to help us develop a deeper understanding of the scientific research base in the UK that is relevant to the Space sector. To further develop our engagement with universities, we have established a network of joint-funded positions known as Knowledge Exchange Fellowships.

About the role

Knowledge Exchange Fellows operate at a strategic level with their university, and work to:

  • Identify intersections of existing or intended research strengths and un-met commercial need.
  • Promote and drive the development of agreed inter-disciplinary research and exploitation themes which will appeal to businesses and lead to commercialisation.
