3 August 2016 – UK-based space companies are invited to an event on 15 September 2016 to explore Chile as a potential market for export. It is being hosted by the Satellite Applications Catapult and takes place from 10am until 1:15pm.
The Catapult is currently working on a number of projects in Chile, with various partners across sectors, including mining, environmental monitoring, disaster management, and mitigation of illegal fishing.
The Exploring Opportunities event will also outline a proposal to host an outward mission to Santiago for members of the UK Space supply chain in 2017, hosted by British Chamber of Commerce Santiago. The mission will be to drive increased industrial engagement with Chile, and to meet Chile’s ambition to integrate space based capabilities into a growing number of sectors of its economy.
