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.
