We plan to create 1,000 space technology jobs by 2025, and to double that by 2030. This could generate a further 8,000 jobs in the space supply chain, and grow our economy by over £1 billion.
We have set out this vision in ‘Human Centred Space’, our Space Action Plan to 2030. You can view the summary document below.
The UK is hoping to capture 10% of that market, presenting a huge opportunity for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to harness our existing assets to be at the forefront of the space revolution.
