The Cornwall Space Cluster will be demonstrating its world-leading capabilities to an international audience at the 2nd Annual NewSpace Europe 2018 conference, taking place at the European Convention Center Luxembourg (ECCL) from 27th – 28th November..

Cornwall is fast becoming the UK’s primary gateway into space, and Cornwall Space Cluster will be highlighting the research, development and innovation already underway within the region.
 
NewSpace Europe is the only annual space conference in Europe to focus solely on the economic opportunity of space. It’s hosted by the Luxembourg Space Agency, and this year’s theme will focus on ‘Breaking Barriers’; discussing how current barriers are being overcome in launch, remote sensing and the space-based economy.

James Fairbairn, Business Engagement Manager at AeroSpace Cornwall – the European Union’s-funded programme promoting Cornwall’s space cluster, said: “We will be representing not only Cornwall’s but also the UK’s future commitment to space enterprise at NewSpace. The Cornwall Space Cluster can offer investment opportunities, and provide a unique opportunity to join the growing aerospace and space industries within the region.”
