Insect Research Systems’ Dr Geraint Morgan had the honour of jointly presenting the Keynote Lecture at SpaceTech 2014, along with Dr Ross Burgon (The Open University). SpaceTech2014 is the UK's premier space technology conference and business matchmaking event, with the aim to create UK and European connections between space research and successful commercial business development on Earth.

Jointly organised by the Science and Technology Facilities Council, the European Space Agency and Enterprise Europe Network this year’s event focussed on ESA’s comet-chasing Rosetta Mission and how technologies similar to those used on it can deliver benefit to businesses back on Earth, including the detection of bedbugs in hotels.
