Space Industry Day

27 Sep 2018 - 12:00pm
Martin Wood Complex, Department of Physics, University of Oxford, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PU
Martin Wood Lecture Theatre

The UK Space Sector is growing rapidly with a target to reach £30Bn p.a. by 2030, with much of this driven by a revolution in small satellites and the increased ability to process, transmit and analyse data. Evolving developments in Earth Observation, solar system exploration, and UK launch facilities contribute to an exciting future in space research and innovation. Oxford University has world-leading research activities in a number of key areas relevant to these opportunities, and is geographically well-placed to engage with the emerging Space Cluster at Harwell. To develop links in this area, Oxford is therefore hosting a space industry day to develop links and facilitate future collaborations in this field.

The purpose of the day is to:

  • Showcase Oxford University research and innovation of relevance to the space sector
  • Enable Oxford University researchers to understand the challenges and opportunities faced by the space sector
  • Collaborate with partners such as ESA, RAL Space and the Satellite Applications Catapult in showcasing our joint capabilities
  • Enable potential collaborations between Oxford University researchers and the space sector to be initiated

The audience for the day is:

  • Industry and government representatives involved in space research and innovation
  • Spin-out companies and start-ups interested in working in the space sector
  • Researchers currently involved in space research, or in adjacent technology areas of potential importance to space, who want to showcase their work and develop collaborations

Arrangements for the day:

  • Researchers and companies can display their research and technical interests with posters and demos
  • Flash talks have been divided into three sessions around topics of interest
  • Posters and demonstrations will remain open whilst the flash talk sessions are ongoing
