From Earth observation and data analysis to satellite design, manufacture, testing, launch and operations, Scotland is in a unique position. With 170 data science companies based in Edinburgh alone, and more than 130 space organisations and 83 aerospace companies in Scotland, the country’s space sector is buzzing with activity.
The Scottish Space Strategy, published in 2021, identified sustainability as a key thread of Scotland’s approach to space. Scottish Enterprise sought to turn this strategic intent into a coordinated programme of action for industry, academia, and the public sector through the development of a sustainability roadmap which ties in with the wider UK’s Plan for Space Sustainability.
