University of Exeter & Cornwall Council strengthen collaboration on Spaceport Cornwall

By on

The University of Exeter and Cornwall Council have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen their collaboration on Spaceport Cornwall. Spaceport Cornwall is due to be the site of the UK’s first satellite launch this year.

The newly-signed MoU will commit the University and the Council to work on a wide range of key objectives related to Spaceport Cornwall, as well as new skills and education opportunities for local communities.

Conrad Gillespie, SWCoESA Centre Manager said:

“The SWCoESA are very proud to have helped to initiate this mutually-beneficial MoU, and we look forward to being actively involved in all of the associated common objectives, including the Kernow Sat programme, Centre for Space Technologies and developing Space upskilling & education programmes.

This MoU will also strengthen our strategic alliance, in order for Spaceport Cornwall to become an official partner in our evolving ‘South West Space Enterprise Gateway’ strategy, focusing on clean growth innovations, environmental intelligence and sustainability initiatives.”

Professor Lisa Roberts, Vice-Chancellor at the University of Exeter added:

“I am delighted that the University of Exeter has signed this Memorandum of Understanding with our partners at Cornwall Council, to build a strong future for Spaceport Cornwall.

“Our mission here at the University of Exeter is to demonstrate how, together, we create the possible and make a difference to the people, communities, partners and world around us.

“Spaceport Cornwall is an unique example of how we can, working together, defy conventional boundaries and be at the forefront of science and innovation here in the South West.  It is also another boost to helping the region to revolutionise businesses, jobs and skills for the future.”
