Cornwall & Isles of Scilly – Space Action Plan 2018-2030

We have published a Space Action Plan looking at how our region can share in the year-on-year growth of the global space economy, estimated to be worth £400 billion annually by 2030.

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.
