Delivering UK In-Space Business Growth from the Centre of Europe
Centred around the city of Lausanne on the shores of Lake Geneva, there is a dynamic and innovative in-space Swiss eco-system that wants to actively engage with UK space networks.
Key areas of focus include - a specialist workforce of engineers and technicians, a unique government offset funding programme, extensive academic and R&D connections, substantial corporate partnerships, and an open and flexible business climate full of growth and investment opportunities.
This private roundtable led by Innovaud, the economic development agency for the region, will explore these extensive and unique opportunities in trade and investment for UK companies to build collaborative European partnerships and market growth.
