Launching Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (CIoS) to the forefront of space utilisation travel and research, our action plan will accelerate the economy through innovation and education. By putting people at the heart of space activities and development, it will generate employment and research opportunities, targeting 1,000 ‘upstream’ jobs by 2025 in associated manufacturing and engineering activities, and eight times that ‘downstream’ in the service of people, such as health, agri-food, marine, creative industries, tourism and digital. It will inspire young people, working closely with our schools, colleges and universities and up-skill the workforce, catalysing the creation of up to 9,000 new, highly skilled jobs in both emerging and established companies, which will take advantage of space derived data in their supply chains by 2030.
We have set out this vision in ‘Human Centred Space’, our Space Action Plan to 2030. You can view the summary document below.
