MK:Smart partners, The Satellite Applications Catapult and UCMK, have come together to organise this networking and demonstration event entitled ‘Space for You’. Space technology includes crafts and planets, but is also applied to our day-to-day life without us thinking about it consciously – weather data, GPS, satellite communications and more. Driven by innovative new business models, reduced launch costs and advancements in technology, the sector is providing unprecedented opportunities for developers and entrepreneurs.

This will be an excellent opportunity to network with like minded people, and you can register to attend the event at: Space for You
