The Space Growth Partnership (SGP) is a strong and dynamic partnership between industry, government and academia, created to secure the future growth and global success of the UK Space Sector.

Globally, the Space Sector is evolving at an ever increasing rate.  Nations around the world are ramping up their Space capabilities, including in Space science, while private operators are changing the dynamics of the industry and new technologies lowering barriers to entry. Each of these developments represents an opportunity – and a challenge – for the UK.

If we are to grow, and not merely defend, Britain’s share of the global market, we need to do more.

This is why the UK Space community has created a strategy to capitalise on the opportunities presented by rapidly maturing new technologies.

Prosperity from Space is the UK Space Sector’s proposal to government for a Space Sector Deal.  It sets out the current strong position of the Space industry as a contributor to the UK economy and outlines its joint ambition and strategy for the future.
