76 Portland Place
London, England W1B 1NT

With Professor Richard Holdaway FREng, Director Space Science & Technology, STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Matthew Stuttard, Head of Space Science and Exploration, EADS Astrium

The UK is a leading player in space science and industry - we may not have sent astronauts to play golf on the moon, but UK-based companies and academic researchers have provided the knowledge and the technology to send missions to other planets, study the far reaches of the universe and improve the understanding of our own Earth. Many services essential for modern living are aided by satellites built, designed or developed in the UK.

This event will look at the opportunities for UK businesses in space science and the prospects for R&D that this brings. How can the UK ensure it fully exploits its competitive advantage in satellites, robotics and related space technologies?
