Space Hub Yorkshire is a coordinator of Space activity across the region, a catalyst for new satellite and geospatial data markets, a source of Space expertise, a facilitator of new collaborations, a driver of investments, a champion for Space start-ups and an advocate for Space research and industry opportunities.

Our vision is unlocking Space for the people and businesses of Yorkshire. Connecting, promoting, and guiding innovation. Raising skills, raising aspiration. Championing inclusion. Delivering prosperity.

To drive Space-enabled economic growth, investment is crucial in three key functions: CAMPUS, AGENCY, and NETWORK (CAN). This entail creating a Virtual Space Campus to harness academic resources, fostering collaboration with agencies like UKSA and ESA, and coordinating with government bodies for investment and export opportunities. Additionally, the initiative facilitates information exchange and networking, empowering regional industries to forge connections, adopt best practices, and strengthen supply chains.

The UK Space Agency allocates funding to Space Hub Yorkshire to elevate the regional space sector and economy. For instance, GreenSpace, a pioneering project merging Earth Observation expertise with Green Finance, seeks to forge new markets. Furthermore, Space Hub Yorkshire spearheads the Satellite Applications Catapult’s UK Earth Observation Network for Sustainability (UK-EONS), amplifying the influence of space data on sustainability challenges by fostering collaboration and investment avenues.

Space North East England logo

Space North East England

Finding inspiration in every turn

Space North East England offers opportunities and partnerships to unlock market opportunities within the North East of the UK which will benefit local and national economies. The cluster will ensure the successful commercialisation of new technology and innovations by cementing the UK’s position as a key player in the satellite technology sector.

The cluster helps businesses to exploit the use of satellite data, technology and applications to gain a competitive advantage in a global market – we are interested in hearing from organisations already in the space sector but also from those which have the potential to work in the space and satellite sector but have not yet investigated what market opportunities this might mean.

We provide assistance to organisations via one to one support and events. Our overarching theme is using satellite applications to create a safer world, including sustainable living and climate change, security of supply chains, building resilience in infrastructure and assets, and much, much more. If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you.
