Space Leadership Council

The Space Leadership Council is jointly chaired by David Willetts, Minister of State for Universities and Science and Andy Green, President of UKspace and includes senior representatives from across industry, the research community and government.

The Space Leadership Council (SLC) was created in response to a recommendation by the independent, industry-led Space Innovation and Growth Strategy (IGS). The strategy was published in February 2010 by the Space Innovation and Growth Team.

Its duties include:

  • providing advice to the UK Space Agency on its work plan and future opportunities;
  • offering advice on the areas of space activity in which the UK should seek to develop and maintain global leadership; and
  • promoting the UK’s space industry and scientific excellence in space research, technology and applications and overseeing the implementation of agreed recommendations of the Innovation and Growth Strategy.
