In this edition of the University of Portsmouth's Interdisciplinary Webinar Series, Leïla Choukroune, Professor of International Law and Director of the Thematic Area in Democratic Citizenship, hosts a presentation by Professor Adam Amara, Director of the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth.

The space sector is going through a surge of activity. New commercial companies have made getting to space easier and the UK has great ambitions for growing the space sector in the coming decade. This means that space technologies will continue to bring great benefits as the services they enable become more embedded in our lives. The Hampshire-Surrey region will continue to have an important role to play in the UK space landscape and as anchor institutions so will the universities in the region. I'll present the plans that we are developing at the University of Portsmouth to be a leading institution in the UK space landscape. Our aim is to bring benefits to the region, the nation, and the globe as well as push the frontiers of our understanding of science, galaxies and the universe.
