9:00 am 3rd UK Space Propulsion Workshop: Industry Challenges

On 7th October the AMRC will host the 3rd UK Space Propulsion Workshop. The theme of this year’s events will be industry challenges.

At the beginning of August a number of key challenges were published by the UK Space Propulsion Working Group on _connect.

This is a unique opportunity for researchers or potential suppliers to pitch ideas to the industry and form new collaborations. The aim for the workshop will be to identify capability gaps in the UK propulsion industry by posing a set of key challenges to academia and the supply chain and then forming new connections between groups to fill the technology needs.

Groups who have a relevant technology or programme underway can submit their idea ahead of the workshop & then present in a 10min “elevator pitch” session.

The day will be split into two main sessions (am and pm) that follow the same pattern:

  • A series of short presentations on the key challenges faced by the industry in the short and medium term.
  • A series of “elevator pitches” from technology providers, universities or potential suppliers.
  • Break-out discussions around to build on the technology challenges.

In addition there will be some scene-setting presentations on the current state of Space Propulsion in the UK:

  • An overview of the UK propulsion landscape from launchers to cubesats and telecoms to applications
  • A report back on the activities of the UK Space Propulsion Working Group
  • An overview of the Space Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP)

9:00 am Current Developments in Biocomposites

Overview

This event will bring together people and companies with an interest in biocomposites – what they are, how they can be used, how they compare to traditional materials and the business case for using them.  The event will be a combined workshop and exhibition.  Several key companies in the UK’s biomaterials sector will be exhibiting their latest products.  Talks will be presented by leading researchers in the field.  The day will conclude with an open forum where delegates can question the panel and suggest how the industry can be grown.

Aim

The aim of this event is to determine what Composites UK can do to support the biocomposites sector.  What barriers are there to wider use of biocomposites?  How can these be overcome?

Who should attend?

  • Anyone who currently sells biobased resins or natural fibres.
  • Anyone who currently uses biobased materials or is thinking of using them.
  • Anyone who does research and development into biobased materials.

At this event, attendees will:

  • Meet and exchange ideas with other workers in the sector.
  • Learn about some of the current developments being conducted by other companies and other researchers.
  • Influence the activity of the Composites UK Biocomposites Subgroup.
