Space and Health collide!  Tuesday 11 February 2020 @ ECSAT, Harwell Campus 

This event will feature a series of cross-sector panel discussions and talks to discuss how space solutions can be developed to meet the emerging (and growing) needs of the healthcare market. 

From using technologies and services such as Earth Observation, Space Navigation and Telecommunications satellites, to creating solutions to counter the environmental and lifestyle factors which contribute to health concerns (such as skin cancer and vitamin D-related diseases); attendees will get a sense of how these two seemingly different sectors can hold the key to collaborative innovation. 

Speakers include siHealth, BASF, Public Health England, the NHS, the UK Space Agency and of course, ESA BASS!
