Due to the recent UKSA levelling up funding boost for the UK Space sector, we are excited to announce SHY’s GreenSpace Project
The GreenSpace project will harness space-enabled technology to address local priorities, such as using Earth Observation data to improve environmental monitoring and local public services, and to help innovative technology start-ups and engineering companies access the UK’s Space markets. The projects will be supported by the Satellite Applications Catapult, UK Space Agency’s delivery partner.
Space Hub Yorkshire will be appointing Space Cluster Managers who will work with businesses, government, agencies and our education providers to coordinate Space activity, encourage collaboration, drive inward investment and create inspirational educational outreach programmes.
Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin said: “I’m delighted that Yorkshire has received this funding to boost our space sector. This will help open new doors within the industry that will drive inward investment, tackle the climate emergency and grow our local economy. We know that new technologies are part of our everyday life, and will be in the future, so it is only right that West Yorkshire plays a pivotal part in the country’s ambitions for a growing space sector.”
We are very excited to have won this funding, please keep an eye out for exciting news about the GreenSpace Project!
