Space Cluster Development Report Released

By on

This week EM3 LEP have released their final report on our Space Cluster Development Project. Last year EM3 was the only Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), among six other organisations, to have been awarded a grant by the UK Space Agency to develop the strengths of the UK’s space sector by establishing and maintaining a space cluster – a project that we have been working on ever since. Of which the South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications are one of the founding member.

Our Space Hub Consortium comprises of EM3 LEP, Hampshire County Council, the University of Surrey, the University of Southampton, Oxford Innovation, University of Portsmouth and South Coast Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications.

Our region has more than 185 organisations operating across the industry including BAE Systems, SSTL, Airbus, Earth-I, Alcis, Lockheed Martin, ViaSat, SERCO, SatixFy, InSpace Missions, and NanoAvionics, as well as organisations such as Ordnance Survey, the National Oceanographic Centre, Geoxphere, GHGSat, ICEYE, Mantle Labs and Absolar.

The EM3 Space Cluster Development Project action plan sets out how cross-sector collaboration can generate “world-changing opportunities” including real-time monitoring of carbon emission, solar and wind energy, tracking animals on land, sea and air, and the deployment of resources for disaster management.

Talking of the success of our space cluster, our very own Business Development Manager Louise Butt says,

Undoubtedly, our region is a powerhouse for space-related innovation with capabilities to meet the challenges facing future generations. Space technologies, when applied to a variety of sectors and industries, really do have the power to change the world.

As part of the founding regional Space Hub partnership, I have been delighted to see the excitement, participation and open collaboration of such a diverse range of stakeholders as we build a thriving and successful space community. Working together, we will unlock the full potential of our region.
