Made For Space brings together experts from the space and advanced manufacturing sectors to demonstrate the opportunities and possibilities of new manufacturing technologies and processes, including how they can contribute to the progression of the Third Space Age.


The conference will showcase emerging technologies in fields such as digital engineering, automation and robotics, artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing. The key discussions will cover:

  • enhancing space supply chain collaboration and globalisation through potential partnerships to improve sustainability;
  • new developments in advanced component manufacturing, materials, and design techniques for space;
  • enabling commoditisation of in-space manufacture with developments in robotics, automation, digital Products and remote operations; and
  • inspiring the sector, the art of the possible, and future engineering for disruptive change.


There will also be a focus on the alignment of innovative space technology with the UK Government’s National Space Strategy.
