Arc Universities

Watch the replay of our latest webinar, The Arc in Space, and find out how the Arc Universities are contributing to the UK space sector – an industry that could be worth £40bn per year to the UK economy by 2030.

The universities of the Arc are working together with industry and Government to build a Space Gateway for the whole of the UK.

The Oxford to Cambridge Arc plays host to clusters of space-related activity, including the Satellite Applications Catapult, as well as the propulsion and testing centres at Westcott and Harwell. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the space industry is more important than ever, with Universities key to building the capacity of this major national industry of the future.
