Knowledge Exchange Fellowship (Space industry)

Knowledge Exchange Fellowship (Space industry)

The Satellite Applications Catapult (SA Catapult) is an independent innovation and technology company, created to foster growth across the economy through the exploitation of space. The Satellite Applications Catapult established the Knowledge Exchange (KE) programme to develop a deeper understanding of the scientific research base in the UK that is relevant to the Space sector.

Together with Aberystwyth University and the UK Space Agency, the SA Catapult has funded a Knowledge Exchange Fellowship based in Aberystwyth University. The aim of this fellowship is to support the development of the Welsh Space sector by identifying the needs and opportunities available, with particular emphasis on identifying and supporting the development of the Commercial Downstream Satellite Applications sector in Wales.

In order to achieve this aim we hope to connect academic expertise from our ACSEM centre with Welsh business. We are also hosting events throughout Wales to encourage collaborations and support business growth in downstream activities.  These events are designed for both companies already utilising Satellite Applications and those wishing to expand their capabilities to include Satellite Applications in the future.

Please contact us if your company is interested in research opportunities, sponsoring studentships or for more information on upcoming events.
