We would like to invite you to join us as we celebrate the success of the Westcott Space Cluster over the last three years and share the vision for the future.
The event will take place both in-person at Westcott Space Cluster and virtually in a first-of-its-kind, hybrid format. You will hear from senior representatives from the Satellite Applications Catapult, Bucks LEP, Westcott Venture Park, and subject matter experts from the fields of Space Propulsion and Manufacturing, Health and Agri-tech applications using 5G & space connectivity, drones and much more. We will showcase the Westcott BIC companies who will tell us about their amazing journeys and the innovative products and services they are developing.
The event will also feature a ground-breaking ceremony for a brand new, £multi-million facility at Westcott, the latest in the Catapult’s linked network of Disruptive Innovation for Space Centres (DISC).
Whether attending in person or on-line, you’ll also have the opportunity to take a tour of the site, network with other attendees and companies and meet the teams working on making Westcott Space Cluster a global centre for space, right here in the UK.
