UK Draft Space Strategy Consultation: Update

Press Release From: British National Space Centre
Posted: Friday, March 21, 2003

There are less than six weeks remaining of the public consultation process on the draft UK Space Strategy.

The draft strategy was released on 22 January. Since then BNSC has received a substantial quantity of public input representing a wide range of interests and opinions, and expects to receive more feedback during the final six weeks of the consultation period. All comments will be considered carefully and will feed into future drafts of the document.

As part of the consultation process, BNSC held on 11 March a public event in the magnificent Octagon Room of Queen Mary, University of London. The meeting was well attended and a series of challenging and insightful presentations by representatives of the UK space community set the background for lively and thought-provoking debate. You can read more about the event, and find links to the days programme, a list of organisations represented, a note of the event and a copy of the speech given by the Science Minister, Lord Sainsbury here.

Do not miss your chance to have your say on the future of the UKs space policy. You can download a copy of the strategy itself and find details on how to give your feedback here. The consultation process closes on 30 April 2003 and BNSC aims to produce a final document mid-2003.
