The UK space sector took a significant step forward with the opening of a new state of the art Innovation Centre at Westcott in Buckinghamshire, thanks to £3.2m funding from Bucks LEP. Situated on the Aylesbury Vale Enterprise Zone, the Westcott Innovation Centre’s new 1,200m2 facility is an important step towards delivering a world-leading hub for the space sector in the heart of Buckinghamshire, which has the potential to help lead innovation for years to come in the fields of space propulsion and drone technologies. “The Westcott Innovation Centre is an important example of this government’s commitment to becoming a world leader in the space sector while levelling up jobs and opportunities in our regions”, said Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government, Luke Hall MP..
