UK Space Safety Community Meeting – Registration is Open!

July 28, 2020, from Natasha Jeffrey

Dear Colleagues.

We are planning to announce as a result of the Doodle Poll: – that the date for the online UK Space Safety Community Meeting is 20th August 2020 and registration for the event is now open. This meeting is to ensure everyone is up to date on the Space Safety Programme and enable us to share detail of what is being delivered and what we are still seeking to achieve from our £80M investment. Additionally, we are hoping it will be an excellent forum to identify opportunities and risks in the current programme and provide evidence towards making cases for future investments.

It will be full day virtual Zoom meeting, split across two distinct sessions. This will enable us to facilitate plenty of short breaks and will also to allow participants to connect for the morning or afternoon session if they do not want to attend the entire day.

To receive the Zoom link, please ensure you register on Eventbrite: before the 17th August deadline – only those registered on Eventbrite will be able to join the Zoom online meeting.

The proposed agenda is as follows and will be updated on Eventbrite, accordingly:
