Training & Talent Management

Collaboration between Defence and the wider Space enterprise is vital, particularly in areas like education, training and skills. UK Space Command is leading on developing a Space Academy for growing space skills and education for the UK military and allies, but it will also have a dual use, offering support to the wider UK space sector. This session will look at how the partnership with Industry and Academia can help the UK space sector grow skills and the pool of talent for the UK.
