UK Science and Innovation Network

The Science and Innovation Network (SIN) has approximately 110 officers in over 40 countries and territories around the world building partnerships and collaborations on science and innovation. Our work in China, in partnership with SIN China, promotes cooperation and collaboration in education and academia.


In a recent article the Foreign Commonwealth Office recognises the contributions of the National Space Academy, most recently at the UK China Space Conference in December 2018.

"SIN works with UK partners such as STFC RAL Space, the UK Space Agency and the National Space Academy together with Chinese Academia, Industry and Government to help UK organisations understand opportunities in the sector through the annual UK China Space Conference. The last conference in Ningbo, Zhejiang province in December 2018 attracted more than 30 UK organisations (including 16 businesses) to explore cooperation in non-sensitive areas such as earth observation, commercial applications, education and training, emerging space technology and astronomy."
