A new register of space-based solutions delivered by space organisations and funded by UK aid. These solutions will tackle problems such as illegal deforestation, disaster response and food production. It provides international governments, donors, non-governmental organisations and companies, with information on cost-effective ways to help development goals.
UK Science Minister Chris Skidmore said:
“We can be proud that many of the companies at the cutting edge of the latest space technologies are based right here in the UK, providing high skilled, well paid jobs right across the country.”
“Today’s new directory showcases what the UK space industry has to offer, giving details of what is already being achieved as far afield as Asia, Africa and South America, and offering a single place to tap into this expertise and these services.”
“The huge growth opportunity for the UK space sector is supported through our modern Industrial Strategy, promoting both here and abroad the best that British businesses can offer, helping deliver thousands of highly skilled jobs and boosting our economy.”
