SPRINT Associate Membership

SPRINT Associate Membership

The SPace Research and Innovation Network for Technology (SPRINT) programme is pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative to expand the SPRINT partnership by introducing an Associate Membership. SPRINT are keen to embed new HEI partners into the programme to work alongside the Founding Members to improve the provision of space-related knowledge exchange across the UK.  As an Associate Member, HEIs should be committed to supporting the growth of the space sector in the UK and committed to actively enabling this through knowledge exchange and commercialisation activities.

Associate Members can benefit from:

  • Access to the National SPRINT Innovation Adviser network and SPRINT business community
  • An opportunity to engage in fully-funded knowledge exchange activities [1],[2] in collaboration with businesses within the SPRINT business community – supported by a National SPRINT Innovation Manager
  • Promotion of relevant capabilities and expertise both on the website and across the SPRINT marketing and communications channels (social media, exhibitions & conferences and business networking meetings/workshops) including the use of the SPRINT logo on related HEI-led marketing and communications
  • Sharing of knowledge exchange best practice in the space sector
  • Channels to contribute to future SPRINT-led funding proposals and other collaboration opportunities
  • Membership of a high-profile and well-regarded organisation that is embedded within the UK space innovation ecosystem
[1] At the date of publication the pooled budgets to support these activities stands at ~£1.5M over a 12mo. period
[2] SPRINT reviews project applications from all Members against quality-based metrics in a competitive process. SPRINT membership does not guarantee that submitted project applications will be funded
