Space network launched to boost graduate skills

The UK’s top space-science universities have joined forces to provide resources, training and events to improve the skills of their graduates.

The Space Universities Network was launched on 30 May at the UK Space Conference in Manchester and will be coordinated by the University of Bristol. So far, 23 institutions have joined up, including the universities of Leicester, Manchester, Southampton, Strathclyde, and Cranfield University. A further five universities have expressed an interest in joining.

“The global space market is forecast to be worth at least £400 billion by 2030 and we want UK graduates to be able to compete,” said Lucy Berthoud, the network’s chairwoman and a senior teaching fellow at Bristol.
