Testimonials from the UK Space Conference 2011
"As Jean-Jacques Dordain, the Director General of ESA has told us in his opening address, ESA will continue to focus on creating knowledge, enable the generation of innovative services and support the competitivity of European industry.
In my view these objectives resonate well with the space innovation and growth strategy the UK has published last year.
I also believe that ESA's ARTES programme, of which the UK is traditionally a strong partner, is ideally suited to help translate these objectives into practical reality and commercial success.
The significant interest and level of participation in the conference is impressive!
I am therefore glad to have decided to come to Warwick with my colleagues to engage the community to prepare concrete proposals that will enable ESA to contribute to meeting these objectives and to deliver on the economic targets set for the benefit of the UK and for Europe as a whole."
