Bayes Centre News: Bayes Centre welcomes a delegation from 10 companies as part of Canada Space Mission

The Bayes Centre was pleased to host a delegation from 10 companies as part of Canada Space Mission.

The companies visited the Bayes Centre on Friday 11th of March and were on a space trade mission to the UK with the final stop in Edinburgh to learn more about the booming Scottish space ecosystem and find out about the data science capabilities at the University of Edinburgh. 

The companies attending were impressed with the vast and very well connected space sector in Scotland, hearing from colleagues in Scottish Development International and Scottish Enterprise. The event enabled the Space Innovation Hub team to share their exciting plans to become the Space Data Capital of Europe and showcase the University’s end-to-end space capability.
