The UK Department for International Trade and UK Space Agency, in partnership with Austrade and Australian Space Agency, signed the UK-Australia Space Bridge Framework Arrangement on 23rd February 2021. Please see here for the press release and here for details of the Framework Arrangement. This world-first initiative will unlock improved access to trade, investment and academic research opportunities, better advice to businesses and innovative bilateral collaborations.
As a part of implementing the Framework Arrangement, the UK will be hosting a series of webinars focused on the space sectors of the UK Devolved Administrations and English regions, and Australia’s States and Territories. Each webinar will be led by local representatives from each region. Each webinar will provide an overview of the local space sector strategy, support mechanisms, areas of capability and comparative strengths.
The Australian webinar series is running from 19th May until 30th June. Read more and register for each webinar here.
The UK webinar series is running from 15th June until 20th July and registration links will be made available by 7th June. At the South Coast Centre for Excellence we are taking part on the event on the 6th July.
