SSGP (via the UK Space Agency) made up to £400k available for projects that contribute towards its goals and can run between January and March 2015.
The SSGP ambition is to help the public sector create sustainable operational services from satellite data and products to enable smarter, more efficient operations, reduce risk and enhance policy making. A key goal is to make use of existing investment in space and allow UK government to become first intelligent customers for satellite products and services that could generate economic growth through export.
The purpose of this call was to stimulate ideas from suppliers and public sector users for how to overcome the barriers to using space in the public sector and to allow some first steps on that journey.
Our successful projects from this competition can be found on our Case Studies page
