Event description
SpaceUP, the unconference, is coming to Glasgow! The Space Conference where you control the agenda

About this Event

Following the success of SpaceUp’s events globally, a small team has decided to bring SpaceUP to the European home of small satellite manufacture, Glasgow. SpaceUP Glasgow will follow the tested SpaceUp model of conference where YOU are the conference. This conference will host both T-5 and T-15 grid talks, along with interesting discussions with industry and academic experts.

SpaceUP Glasgow is all about making connections and making things happen, whether you have an idea or are looking to get a job within the industry; at SpaceUP Glasgow you will make the connections you need to make things happen. Why not get started with a T-5 or T-15 talk?

Whether you are a student, an academic, in industry or just interested in space. SpaceUP Glasgow allows you to get involved with space. Space is being democratised and you can be part of it.

Keynote speakers to be announced!
