Westminster Business Forum - The future for the UK space economy

25 April 2017

Organisations: Westminster Forum Projects (WFP)

Location: London, United Kingdom

Seminar Overview:

In the context of the British Government's ongoing target for the UK to capture 10% of the global space market by 2030, delegates at this conference will consider key opportunities and challenges ahead for the UK space industry.

The seminar is timed to facilitate discussion between policymakers and stakeholders as the UK Space Agency considers responses to its consultation on a new strategy for how the National Space Policy principles of growth, safety and security and collaboration can be put into practice, and to ensure that the strategic importance of the industry is recognised.

Delegates will also assess the implications of the ESA Council of Ministers for the funding of UK projects for the next four years. Further planned sessions will discuss infrastructure as the government considers the location for the UK's first national spaceport, as well as future priorities for trade, investment and sector skills following the EU-referendum result.

Satellite derived annual PM2.5 data sets in support of United Nations sustainable development goals

15 - 29 March 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Conference objectives:

Air pollution caused by particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns or less (PM2.5) can reduce visibility and adversely affect human health. As a result, the United Nations has addressed this type of pollution in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Recently, annual mean PM2.5 maps have been developed using MODIS, MISR, and SeaWiFS observations from 1998-2015 and have been used by organisations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Greenpeace, to assess global air quality and health impacts.

In this webinar, participants will become familiar with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the satellite observations of air quality that are used to calculate indicators 3.9.1 and 11.6.2. This training will cover accessing the data, analysing long-term trends, and combining PM2.5 and population data sets to understand long-term exposure.

Course Dates: Three, one-hour sessions on 15, 22 and 29 March.

Workshop on vicarious infrastructure

21 - 23 February 2017

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: ESA-ESRIN - Frascati, Italy

Conference overview:

The objective of this workshop is to gather experts in the different fields involved in vicarious adjustment and open a wide range debate on the best way to go for future long term vicarious infrastructure.


The Copernicus programme represents a major evolution of Ocean Colour Radiometry (OCR). Going operational with the S3 OLCI series provides the guarantee of a continuous flow of consistent products. OCR relies on vicarious adjustments to ensure accuracy on geophysical products. To make sure the best possible product is delivered to users, ESA is organising an international workshop from 21 – 23 February 2017 to evaluate options for future European satellite OCR vicarious adjustment infrastructure for Sentinel-3 OLCI and Sentinel-2 MSI series.
