NSSI Business Case

The National Space Partnership (NSP) is supporting the development of the Comprehensive Spending Review Business Case for the National Space Skills Institute by identifying current provision and allied bids/initiatives. This will consider different models for provision of space-focussed learning opportunities.

This activity will examine the current, new and developing skills provision landscape (including in other sectors) and include, where possible, models, costs and appetite for fees from different users. It will also prioritise requirements based on a recent skills survey report and consider different requirements of industry, academia and government.

Space Research Community Assessment

The NSP is undertaking a review of the UK academic space community and assess its strengths and weaknesses for major new research opportunities and partnerships as identified in UK Space Strategy. This will provide the first comprehensive “Size and Health” report on the UK Space Research Community and identify linkages between research and Government policy and commercial needs.

This activity will:

  • Explore the state of play in space research across our main competitors and international partners
  • Establish key trends and priorities
  • Create a sector map addressing UK academic space research and outline its size and health
  • Capture case studies to provide evidence and metrics
  • Develop an outline roadmap to take the research sector forward.
