Date(s) - 15/07/2020
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm


Join us for a fast-paced event exploring the future of manufacturing in space in collaboration with Satellite Applications Catapult. We will be joined by representatives from across government, industry and academia to discuss how current manufacturing could be applied in space, and how the space environment could enhance future manufacturing capabilities.

We are inviting you to participate in the event within the topics of ‘Why in space and not on Earth’, ‘Getting manufacturing facilities into space’ and ‘UK capabilities for manufacturing in space’. If you would like to apply to participate please let us know by emailing with details of what you would like to present, and we will be in touch with you by 8th July to let you know the outcome. Each speaking slot will be limited to one or two speakers so if there is a high demand we will look to include more opportunities in future events.

The event will also include parallel panel sessions so you will be asked when registering to choose a session that you would like to attend. These will give you the opportunity to get involved and ask questions to the panellists, and to drive the conversation based on the collective group involvement.
