ADS Scotland is delighted to offer companies interested in the space sector this opportunity to hear directly from Richard Peckham, UK Strategy & Business Development Director – Airbus Defence and Space Ltd, Chair UKSpace and VP Space at ADS about the Space Growth Partnership (SGP) and its work.

The Space Growth Partnership is an industry led initiative working to propose and deliver a space sector deal comprising a co-ordinated strategy to deliver accelerated growth through innovation for the UK space sector.

The global market for space is expected to increase from £155bn per annum to £400bn per annum by 2030. The opportunity for the UK is to secure 10% of this global space economy, £40bn per annum (by 2030), creating a demand for more than 50,000 new jobs. The sector deal is responding to the need to build on and accelerate current sector growth to meet the ambitious 2030 targets. This event offers companies the chance to hear current details regarding the sector deal and provide their own suggestions and feedback for consideration.

A full agenda will follow in due course but we wanted to give companies notice of this event immediately. Places are strictly limited and will be reserved on a first come first served basis, so please book you place at this FREE event now by emailing
