In light of the Scottish and UK Governments’ advice around COVID-19, we have taken the decision to hold the event online at 2 pm (UK time) through Zoom.

The RSE will share the hyperlink to view the discussion and participate in the live Q&A on the morning of the event via email to those who have booked. The discussion will also be recorded and published on the RSE’s YouTube account after the event.

Satellite data services are integrated into many aspects of our lives, from satellite navigation through to environmental monitoring. A panel of experts will discuss the broad range of ways in which space technology is used and how Scotland is helping lead the way in developing the space technologies of the future in a live Q&A.

This is the 2020 Annual RSE/RAEng event, organised in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering.
