Two of the constituent elements of HuSCO are the UK Space Life and Biomedical Sciences Association and the UK Space Environments Association. The associations consist of organisations and individuals working in fields directly or indirectly related to space life sciences or which require aspects of the environment of space for their endeavours. The associations offer the ability to tap into space related networks, access information concerning UK and international space activities, provide links to useful space organisations and news, and provide online platforms for 1. The acquisition of space R&D facilities and apparatus; and 2. To publicise space -related commercial products and mature R&D IP to both space and non-space communities.
