Manufacturing for Space - Scottish H2020 Cofund Proposal

This may not be your ideal time to consider submission of an EU proposal - but while things hopefully get sorted out a very exciting proposal is being submitted to the European COFUND call later in the summer.  The topic is Manufacturing for Space - fostering excellence and mobility.  It will provide 3-year doctoral studies for 20 outstanding early-stage researchers.  The theme encompasses the design and manufacturing of systems and subsystems that are associated with the launch, bus and payload of tomorrow's satellites through a range of space-compatible manufacturing technologies.  The goal of the programme is to help position Scotland as a leader in future space technologies.  

A good number of universities and companies in Scotland have already signed up to support students in the proposal, though there is currently still the opportunity for more companies and research groups to support additional placements.  If you would like to know more, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
