International Partnership Space Programme (IPSP) Networking Event
The aim of this networking event is for the UK Space Agency (UKSA) to share with you details of its IPSP Programme and for you to hear directly from the companies involved as they share details of their exciting projects.
The day will also provide a chance for you to network with a number of international companies, officials from UK and overseas government departments and members of the NGO community involved in IPSP and discuss how these might be able to support your business needs moving forwards. This engagement with you will also help the UKSA to shape a strong case for continued government support for further IPSP funding calls.

Background to IPSP Programme
IPSP is a two year £32m programme to test an approach to enable UK satellite and other space sector companies to develop international partnerships for mutual benefit. It provides grants under the Science and Technology. The objectives for this programme are about societal or economic benefits from the use of UK satellite or space technology for countries that currently do not have these benefits. It is about the UK learning from the partnership with these countries and it is about establishing the UK as the partner of choice with these countries once they are in a position to acquire or enhance their own space or satellite infrastructure.
If you would like to attend this IPSP event, UKSA kindly asks you to RSVP providing name, job title and organisation to Laura Bocarro (laura [dot] bocarroukspaceagency [dot] bis [dot] gsi [dot] gov [dot] uk) by Wednesday 24th June 2015.
