Virtual Scotland-Germany Space Roundtable

25. 11. 2020 9:00 - 10:30

Scotland’s space sector is rising faster than anywhere else in the UK, aiming to grow in value to GBP 4 billion by 2030 and placing Scotland among the frontrunners in Europe – in fact, Glasgow manufactures more satellites than any other city in Europe. Scotland is also developing Europe’s first orbital spaceport alongside flexible vertical and horizontal launch sites. From design, manufacturing and testing to launch and operation, Scotland is in a unique position to service all space tech needs.

Germany’s engineering and technical prowess make it a natural leader for the modern space race. Germany features one of Europe’s most important space sector ecosystems. Alone the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy spends more than EUR 1 billion on space R&D each year. The Federal Government is supporting space as a key technology to serve humanity and supports projects in the fields of earth observation, satellite communications and satellite navigation.
