Return to Reinventing Space 2017

RISpace 2017 venue

Strathclyde University’s Technology and Innovation Centre (TIC), our 2017 venue, is situated at 99 George Street, Glasgow G1 1RD.

Aerospace is recognised as a growth area for the UK economy, with a track record of growth and clear potential for the future. Small and innovative Scottish companies have been establishing a presence in the sector and demonstrating their own potential.

The UK is a world leader in the satellite business, with a particular strength in small satellites. Scottish companies are already to the fore in providing components and systems for satellites – particularly small satellites.

Strathclyde University’s Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC) is the cornerstone of Scotland’s International Technology and Renewable Energy Zone. The £89 million world-class centre represents a significant milestone as the largest single investment in the University’s history. The TIC provides state-of-the-art research facilities and a flexible working environment which will bring together up to 750 academics, researchers, postgraduate students and project

RISpace, held between Tuesday 24 and Thursday 26 October 2017, will be hosted in the TIC’s state-of-the-art auditorium with its foyer space hosting the exhibition and catering. We will also host a networking reception and a gala dinner.

An extra day on Friday 27 October will include site visits to space companies in Scotland’s Central Belt.
