Q: What is the mission itinerary?
A: Good question. The itinerary is built around an event and/or a specific location. Whilst some visits will be arranged in advance, the programme will be developed to support the objectives of the companies taking part. Including information on who you’d like to visit on the application form is a big help!
Q: How will my entry be judged?
A: Companies will be selected based on innovation and their suitability for the international market in a competitive process. Delegates will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. It’s a good idea to apply as early as possible to get the maximum benefit. Check the application form for more information about the selection criteria for each mission.
Q: Is my company too small to apply?
A: Probably not. The balance of the group will also be considered in making the final selection to deliver a message of the diverse nature of the UK’s space sector. In a very few cases, some criteria may be relaxed for younger companies presenting profoundly innovative ideas.
Q: How much will it cost?
A: A contribution of £1999 + VAT is required from each selected company. This is heavily subsidised through the support of our public and private sector supporters and includes international and internal travel, accommodation and the mission programme in the UK and overseas.
Q: I’ve got a question that isn’t covered here?
A: Drop us a line and we’ll cover anything that’s outstanding.
