The UK’s space sector is a vital part of the economy, worth over £16.4 billion per year and employing over 45,000 people across the UK.
The National Space Strategy brings together the UK’s strengths in science and technology, defence, regulation and diplomacy to pursue a bold national vision.
Now the UK Space Agency is making £500,000 available under its Space for All Fund, to support the aims and objectives of the Inspiration Programme.
The Space for All Fund will help to deliver growth under the National Space Strategy and inspire our future space workforce.
