The Satellite Applications & Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapults are hosting an online event exploring the future of manufacturing in space. The event will feature experts from across government, industry & academia discussing how current manufacturing could be applied in space, as well as how the space environment could enhance future manufacturing capabilities.

Running from 1:30pm - 3pm on Wednesday 15 July, the event will also include two parallel panel sessions, with delegates able to specify when registering which session they would like to attend. These will give delegates the opportunity to get involved and ask questions to the panellists, and to drive the conversation based on the collective group involvement.

This event will be held during Wales Tech Week, and will also be the second in a series of Manufacturing for Space events, following the successful UK Launch Vehicles webinar on 10th June.
