Our UK Engagement
Our UK Engagement

Our UK Engagement

We are engaged with research organisations and industry across the UK, supporting the commercialisation of new research to drive the growth of the UK space sector. We do this through a range of different programmes, including our Regional Centres of Excellence, supporting UK Space Clusters, fellowships and knowledge exchange with universities, and business support.

Explore the map to the left and see below for further details on our UK-wide engagement, as well as how you can contact us to discuss developing or growing your space cluster.

Centres of Excellence

Along with the UK Space Agency, we support regional Centres of Excellence in Satellite Applications to boost the use of satellite technology and data within local industries. Due to the fantastic activities, projects and opportunities to come out of our Centres, some have evolved to burgeoning Space Clusters, supporting a range of businesses and industries which you can find more details on below.

We currently have three UK Centres of Excellence: North East, South West and South Coast. Please click on an individual Centre below to find out more about them, including news and events, and engage with your local Centre to discuss support or collaboration opportunities.

Universities and Fellowships

Universities and Fellowships

We have 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.

Knowledge Exchange Fellows operate at a strategic level with their university. They work to identify intersections of existing or intended research strengths and un-met commercial need, and to promote and drive the development of agreed inter-disciplinary research and exploitation themes which will appeal to businesses and lead to commercialisation.

Industry Connections

Industry Connections

We work closely with ESA Business Applications Ambassadors to support incubation and development through the ESA Business Incubation Centres.

Where possible, we also facilitate introductions between organisations we are working with and relevant industry partners. This includes hosting our monthly networking event, Satuccino, which is attended by a range of space industry organisations from academia, government and industry sectors.

Industry Connections

Having engaged with organisations in over 25 countries worldwide, we have established a presence to act as a conduit for UK businesses promoting space and satellite capability into new regions globally. We do this through providing UK businesses with signposting to opportunities, facilitating new relationships with international partners, collaborating with UK organisations and international. Two regions where we are developing strong relationships currently are China and Australia, giving platforms to support UK businesses to export space and satellite data innovation. Other ongoing and future focus regions for Catapult engagement in support of UK businesses are Latin America, the Gulf, India, Canada and the USA.

China

We are establishing a centre in Guangzhou, China. The new Sino-British Satellite Applications Centre (SBSAC) is aimed towards exploring partnerships and investment opportunities to facilitate joint ventures for the UK Space sector between UK and Chinese organisations. Some of the activities will entail undertaking collaborative research, facilitating international exchanges, and sharing market intelligence on global opportunities for exporting services. This will enable the Centre to be established as a platform for UK companies who wish to engage in the Chinese and Asian markets and to partner for global markets.

Australia

We are developing partnerships and enhanced business engagements within Australia to increase UK space sector collaborative development opportunities, access to new commercial exploitation opportunities and increase awareness of Australian technical and geo-political landscape. Our key engagements with key Australian stakeholders are culminating in new market channels, funding opportunities and bilateral collaborations for UK industry.
