Priorities for developing the UK space sector - infrastructure, regulation, innovation and collabora

12 March 2015, London, UK

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

This conference will focus on the future of the space industry in the UK, particularly in relation to what more can be done to support enterprise, growth, inward investment and exports across the sector.

An important context for the discussion will be Government's focus on satellite and space technologies as part of the recent eight great technologies commitment. The discussion is also timed to assess next steps for Government's Space Growth Action Plan, and what more Government can do to provide a competitive regulatory environment, develop space capabilities and facilitate international collaboration. Delegates - including policymakers and key stakeholders from across industry and the scientific community - will discuss further ways to encourage growth in the UK sector including improving access to finance, business management tools, skills training, and mentoring, as well as latest thinking on the cross-sector application of space technologies, particularly the development, commercialisation and exploitation of satellite data.

Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

13-17 February 2014, Chicago

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The AAAS annual meeting is among the world's largest and most prestigious general scientific event, gathering thousands of international scientists, policy makers and science journalists. The programme typically includes keynote speeches, scientific symposia, an exhibition, and press briefings on recent scientific discoveries.

This year's event focuses on "Meeting Global Challenges: Discovery and Innovation", and the European Commission is organising a number of scientific symposia each highlighting different aspects of impact of EU-funded research and innovation.

The Commission's Deputy Director-General for Research & Innovation, Rudolf Strohmeier, will hold a press briefing on 'Destination Europe: research funding opportunities across the Atlantic', and will participate in three scientific symposia. The Commission will also have a booth at the exhibition where conference participants can find out about career and funding opportunities in the EU.
