Cornwall and the Isle of Scilly is playing a vital role in the UK’s plans to have 10% of the £400bn global space market by 2030. The intention is to continue to scale up the sector, but for that CIoS will need to grow the level of knowledge and experience. The strategy is to develop, attract and retain scientists, software and technology developers, engineers and entrepreneurs.
The Cornwall Space Cluster brings together 157 industry partners with 10 academic and educational institutions and 9 government departments. The space and data sector includes opportunities in everything from space and aerospace engineering, computer programming and data analysis to a wide range of associated technical, administrative, business and service roles.
