An ecosystem view of the UK space sector: how government is building a £40 billon industry

Ready for take-off?

Join us for an online Executive MBA taster lecture

In this session, learn more about the Oxford Executive MBA programme by joining Michele Scataglini, Associate Fellow and Founding member of the Oxford Space Initiative, as he looks at space as an aspiration to shape the future. 

Worth an estimated GBP £40 billion in the coming decades, the UK space industry offers wide open challenges and opportunities for investment, innovation, and entrepreneurial activity – this while mobilising cutting-edge technologies to solve intractable problems on earth. These experiments in distributed innovation, partnerships, governance and sharing of risks and tech expertise will only intensify in the coming years. This session will provide first-hand insights and research into the UK ecosystem and governance into how it will grow.

Hannah Longford, Recruitment Manager, will also share an overview of the programme and give you an opportunity to ask questions.
