Breaking Boundaries: Integrating Industries in the Space Debris Discussion

organised by


in Truro, UK

Join the Safety and Reliability Society and CSATT for a day of exciting conversations and workshops on space debris.

About this event

Through expert talks, panel discussions, and a workshop, Breaking Boundaries will aim to expand the conversation surrounding space debris to incorporate lessons learned by non-space, safety- and reliability-related industries. By including both students and established professionals into the conversation, Breaking Boundaries also aims to integrate existing and up-and-coming knowledge into what is a rapidly evolving and ever-growing topic. With horizontal launch from Cornwall on the horizon, and more constellations of satellites in space than ever, there’s never been a more pressing time to consider the challenges and solutions to space debris.

About the organisers

The Safety and Reliability Society is the professional body for safety, reliability and risk management practitioners. We provide our members with cross-industry learning, CPD and networking opportunities, and hold a license to register CEng and IEng with the Engineering Council. We are internationally recognised as the leading body for domain expertise through technical seminars, journal, knowledge-base, webinars and membership. 

CSATT is the first dedicated space training centre in the South West, with the aim of creating local training opportunities for people in Cornwall. Over the next two years the CSATT team is developing a suite of world-class courses, from apprenticeships to foundation degrees, as well as additional specialist training for those involved in developing projects and businesses. These courses will support the development of the Cornish space sector, ensuring that there are a range of available education pathways for those who want it, and providing high quality employment opportunities in the local area.
