Arc Universities

This week the AUG team has been filming with Lucy Edge, COO at the Satellite Applications Catapult, sharing her vision for the Oxford to Cambridge Arc as a gateway to the future for the UK space industry.

 

Filmed on location at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, her insights will form part of a new webinar on “The Arc: Gateway to Space”, to be hosted by the Arc Universities Group in early 2021.

As Chief Operating Officer of the Satellite Applications Catapult Lucy is responsible for supporting enterprises across the UK in understanding and exploiting the potential of space and satellites to create opportunities and transform businesses.

With a background in Physics and Engineering, Lucy’s career to date has involved the launch of satellites from a few kilograms to a few tonnes, building a satellite operations centre in West Cornwall and setting up the Disruptive Innovation for Space Centre with the Catapult team.

Lucy is an ardent believer in the Catapult vision “To innovate for a better world, empowered by satellites”. Many see the growing space industry as a potential source of economic growth; Lucy also sees it as a way of improving the future for everyone, and of building connections between people and communities that will transform the way we relate to each other.
