Scotland's Space Sector

Innovation Minister, Richard Lochhead MSP, will travel to Los Angeles this week to promote the profile of Scotland’s expanding space industry.

As Scotland pushes forward to deliver the first regular commercial launch in the UK, we are attracting significant inward investment that is augmenting our considerable existing manufacturing and research capabilities.

Mr Lochhead will outline how Scotland is making an important contribution to exploration, innovation and economic growth of the sector to guests including international industry experts, investors and governments.

Prestwick Spaceport in Ayrshire has already secured an £80 million funding boost through the Ayrshire Growth Deal to enable it to undergo a highly ambitious Aerospace and Space Programme and become the leading horizontal launch spaceport in Europe.
