Knowledge Transfer Network

At the 2016 European Space Agency Ministerial meeting, the UK secured significant support for the new Navigation Innovation and Support Programme (NAVISP). This is a programme designed to help uncover future technologies and concepts in Position Navigation and Timing (PNT), to provide support to companies carrying out product and technology development in this domain and to support companies wishing to commercialise those developments.

This event, organised by Innovate UK, UK SA and KTN, and will present the programme to business and academics, will seek feedback for future areas of interest and will enable attendees to access key staff from the UK and ESA.
