INTO SPACE: The UK Space Agency wants local businesses to take advantage of space technology

 

Is there anything more magical than space?

Only this week we've seen incredible images of sunsets on Mars but closer to home, the UK Space Agency are keen for local businesses to consider the opportunities given by the space industry.

The Space Agency are launching a Business Accelerator Programme., running for up to 10 weeks and beginning in March. It's open to businesses of any size and is described as a voyage of discovery which aims to find entrepreneurs from a wide range of sectors who want to use information gathered from space to their benefit.

Catherine Mealing-Jones, Director of Growth at The UK Space Agency, said: “The space sector is ripe with opportunity, and as the UK recovers from the Covid pandemic this new support programme will bring in diverse ideas and talent to realise that growth opportunity.”
