Space Park Leicester will be a significant global hub for businesses, researchers, academia and innovation. It will enable collaboration between the University of Leicester and the private sector, creating high-quality, knowledge-based jobs, building the skills base and contributing to economic growth and the resilience of the economy.
The first phase of the project will deliver a 4800m2 facility for Earth Observation, business hosting and teaching, and will open in summer 2020. Funding for future phases is currently being secured.
Additional phases of Space Park Leicester include:
- An industry-academic collaboratory environment on next-generation space engineering and AI data labs
- A Low-Cost Access to Space Manufacturing Facility for satellite constellations
