Increasing demands to reduce spending have led to new challenges and opportunities in global space. We need to create dramatically lower cost, more responsive space systems and the launchers needed to get them to space quickly.

The three day meeting, including a conference and exhibition will be held within the historic location of the Royal Society. There will be an optional extra day on Friday 21 November where delegates will be the guests of the space finance sector in the City of London.

A record number of abstracts were submitted to the Reinventing Space conference, leading to an event of outstanding quality.

The three day exhibition will run throughout RIspace 2014 and include top players from UK and international industry.

A careers networking fair takes place on 19 November and is organised by the International Space University (ISU), Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and UKSEDS.
