London, 8 March 2023. – UKspace has announced on the 6th of March that the Cornwall Space Cluster will be the first to benefit from its new membership band. This is part of UKspace’s new strategy to broaden the models of membership and widen knowledge of the space sector within companies that can benefit from engaging with the industry. The new membership band is specifically for space clusters in the UK. 

“We are always looking for opportunities to enhance our membership in ways that help all our members, and this new move will enable us to bring different parts of the sector together to the benefit of all,” says Lizzie Kerr, UKspace director. 

UKspace hopes that by having space clusters on board, they will offer new and different perspectives to their membership. UKspace is the official trade association of the space industry. The new membership will allow Cornwall Space Cluster to collaborate with other space businesses, organisations, clusters, and individual experts to grow the global space industry. 

In addition to Cornwall, two other space clusters are in the process of joining UKspace, with one other at the discussion stage.
