Space Growth Partnership
The UK space industry and government plan to establish a Space Growth Partnership to make the UK’s ambition of capturing 10% of the global space market a reality. The new partnership will inform and deliver high levels of sector growth and social benefits to the UK, laying the groundwork for a sector deal as proposed in the Government’s ambitious long-term Industrial Strategy.
