Our objectives:

  • Use Space as a laboratory to study, to expand our understanding of the human condition and to develop techniques and technologies to facilitate exploration missions and healthcare on Earth
  • Develop sustainable cross-disciplinary education programmes in space life, medical and engineering sciences, with additional focus on applied technology through topics of cognitive engineering, automation design, human factors and human computer/robot interaction in healthcare, exploration and operation in extreme and isolated environments.
  • Investigate and instigate biomedical open innovation projects through cross-disciplinary efforts between space, medical and engineering science research teams.
  • Spin-out space techniques and technologies developed within UCL into the health sector and public sector to improve the quality of everyday life.
  • Create on-going collaborative initiatives, of a public and school outreach.
  • Establish new and strengthen existing industrial and academic partnerships with US, Europe, Russia and within the UK.
