  • Enabling Responsible Space Exploitation
    A project which brought together stakeholders from “space science” (notably, the space industry, physics and engineering, supply chain management, and ‘citizens’ (via applied social science and philosophy)) to discuss the implications of ‘democratising Responsible Space Exploitation space’ and to identify the opportunities, challenges and barriers to creating an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable space industry.

  • Opportunities in Pollution 
    A project which built a comprehensive multidisciplinary understanding of pollution by linking academic research across several departments in Durham, local companies, environmental and social organisations.
