It is the mission of R&R Space Ltd to push the boundaries of space technology and innovation by engaging people and ideas. We achieve this through new and exciting concept events and training.
It is our aim to inspire a new wave of entrepreneurs and space explorers by unlocking their potential and linking them with new skills to build the future of space.
R&R Space is founded by two space enthusiasts and aspiring entrepreneurs, Ryan Laird and Ryan Bradley-Evans who share a common vision of humanity's place in space.
SpaceUp is a space unconference, where participants decide the topics, schedule, and structure of the event. We seek to use SpaceUp Leicester as a means to start an open discussion around the topic of space, building a sense of community and a hub in and around Leicester for this growing industry.

Build4Space is planned as an interactive, fun and engaging competition, designed to introduce and teach students and enthusiasts about rapid prototyping technologies and techniques. We aim to challenge the participants in teams to utilise the skills they will acquire during the event to build a prototype that will help solve a core problem.

The R&R team are a pleasure to work with. Their work to develop a grassroots space community here in Leicester, alongside initiatives like Dock, Space Park Leicester and the National Space Centre, is helping to put Leicester and the East Midlands on the map as a hub for Space."
