Based in Leicester, near the National Space Centre - the UK's only attraction dedicated to space - the Space Park is a partnership between the University of Leicester, the City and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP). Space Park Leicester will also be home to the Leicester Institute for Space and Earth Observation - one of the University of Leicester's flagship research institutes, along with first-class teaching and laboratory facilities. It will also be home to a wide range of commercial partners, both large and small, which will provide exceptional business partnering and collaborative opportunities.
From developing satellite technologies to enabling the detailed analysis of space-enabled data, Space Park Leicester will help transform and launch sectors such as internal communications, resource management, environmental monitoring and disaster relief.
The Space Park also sits within an Enterprise Zone, which will offer further benefits to businesses operating from it.
