Boost for Space Cluster Across the UK

The Space Hub Yorkshire is very pleased to have received funding from the UK Space Agency for development and maintenance of Space Cluster in Yorkshire region.

Ten space clusters across the UK have been given a boost, thanks to new UK Space Agency funding. These regional hubs, known as space clusters, will support new and growing companies, building on local expertise and catalysing investment into the space sector. Over £600,000 will go towards supporting activities that create jobs and growth, including recruiting space cluster managers, to strengthen local space sector leadership groups and developing new business opportunities.

The Space Hub Yorkshire will use grant funds to appoint 2x Cluster Development Managers that will drive and take forward recommendations from Yorkshire’s regional space strategy. Funding will also be used to initiate and deliver a programme of events, which will be continued and sustained beyond the lifetime of this grant through in-kind support from regional universities.
