Space Strategy


Scotland, the best place on Earth to build a Space Business


To collaborate to make Scotland the home of New Space – capitalising on a heritage of traditional space missions and entrepreneurship in order to maximise the economic, environmental and societal benefits for Scotland, caring for the environment and promoting a skilled and diverse workforce.

By 2030, we aim to help deliver: 

  • An annual contribution to the Scottish economy in excess of £4bn. 
  • An increase in the workforce by five times the current level. 
  • A globally recognised strategic location and European leader for commercial space developments.
  • A range of managed launch and orbital services, supporting the highest launch cadence in Europe. 
  • An increased and diverse workforce with improved participation that is fully reflective of Scottish society and ensures space is open for all.
