This Discovery Day, hosted by Space for Smarter Government Programme (SSGP) and the DCLG Local Digital Programme, aims to accelerate the uptake of satellite-enabled services to make efficiencies and improve local services.

More about this event

We will:

  • present the basics of satellite application opportunities for local services
  • showcase how satellite data is already being used by local authorities
  • prioritise local authorities’ needs for satellite applications
  • co-design a road map to improve local services and save money using satellite-enabled service

The day will offer local government the opportunity to explore ways of collaborating with peers, the UK Space Agency and the Satellite Applications Catapult.

SSGP will provide a shuttle bus from Didcot Parkway train station, details to follow.
