John Halligan, Minister of State for Training, Skills, and Innovation:

"I travelled to the Netherlands early this morning for a trade visit to ESTEC, the European Space Research and Technology Centre. Ten Irish companies travelled with me, with a view to maximising their participation in European Space programmes and the Satellite Communications market. Amongst them was Dr Ramesh Raghavendra of Waterford Institute of Technology's SEAM, the South Eastern Applied Materials Research Centre. SEAM is doing great work at WIT and I can confirm that they are in active discussions with the European Space Agency exploring opportunities to adapt their manufacturing capabilities for the growing space market. I certainly hope today's visit will be a productive one for this great Waterford operation."
