On 20-21 November the Canada UK Council held its annual Colloquium in Glasgow with the theme 'Space, Obstacles and Opportunities'. The Colloquium was presided over by Lord Willetts and Professor Alan Smith of the University of London served as rapporteur. The ESPI Director, Peter Hulsroj, was invited to be part of the UK team.
The colloquium covered a wide range of space-related issues of relevance to both Canada and the UK, and both experts and non-experts on space matters participated in the discussions, bringing a particularly fruitful interdisciplinary exchange. The outcome of the discussions will be reflected in a report to be published in January and made available on the Canada UK Colloquia website.
