Space Enterprise Lab


The way in which we work has fundamentally changed over the last few years and communicating virtually is now no longer the exception.

Alongside the development of the Space Enterprise Community, the Satellite Applications Catapult has adapted and optimised its services over the last 12 months. But as our stakeholders have started to re-engage physically, these practices have had to evolve once more, ensuring they can continue to innovate and collaborate effectively and efficiently.

With this in mind, we have created the Space Enterprise Labs (SEL), regional spaces for innovation that are digitally inclusive. As an extension of the Space Enterprise Community, the Space Enterprise Labs will provide users with access to resources, virtual demonstrations and Catapult experts, as well as technology including:

  • 50” interactive touch screen and virtual canvas with full connectivity capabilities, enabling seamless delivery of meetings, business support sessions, and opportunity development workshops
  • Video conferencing licenses to run webinars and engage community
  • Professional webcams to ensure engagement quality is always high
  • Virtual Reality Headsets for virtual meetings across the network and demonstrations of space capability (1-on-1 or at events)
  • Key locations dedicated to running innovation services and capability demonstrations.

Our Space Enterprise Lab is located in our Business Incubation Centre, but the network runs across the UK:

  • SEL Daresbury (Liverpool City Region)
  • SEL Edinburgh (South-East Scotland)
  • SEL Exeter (Devon)
  • SEL Glasgow (Central Scotland)
  • SEL Harwell (Oxfordshire)
  • SEL Leeds (Space Hub Yorkshire)
  • SEL Leicester (Leicestershire)
  • SEL NETPark (County Durham)
  • SEL Penryn (Cornwall)
  • SEL Portsmouth (Hampshire)
  • SEL Westcott (Buckinghamshire)
