Space Industry Representatives to Gather in Northern Ireland Later This Month

By Eric Van Rees - 14th June 2022 - 07:37

A space sector networking event has been announced to take place in Northern Ireland on June 24th, featuring updates from a variety of organisations supporting one of the UK’s fastest growing industries.

The event has been organised by the Space Research and Innovation Network for Technology (known as ‘SPRINT’), which provides unprecedented access to the expertise and facilities at top UK space universities to help businesses accelerate the development of their products and services through the commercial exploitation of space data and technologies. Delivery partners for the event include the UK Space Agency and strategic space marketing firm AstroAgency, while the Electronics, Communications and Information Technology (ECIT) research group at Queen's University Belfast is hosting the event.

The UK’s space industry is targeting significant growth within the next decade, with the publishing of the National Space Strategy last year specifying an objective to level up the country’s space economy through supporting regional activity across the United Kingdom. SPRINT’s event seeks to strengthen connections between space value chain companies and those interested in the sector’s opportunities in Northern Ireland, as well as facilitating new collaborations for those businesses across the wider UK.
