British astronaut Tim Peake took this stunning photo of the UK having trained at ESA.

The European Space Agency (ESA) and the EU have close ties. Many projects are funded by the EU, spreading the cost amongst the nations.

EU rules also allow easy collaboration between European countries, sharing skills and scientific components.

The EU Galileo project will give you quicker and more accurate GPS so that you can get around easier.
Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (UK) built GIOVE-A as part of the Galileo satellite and it was a complete success. The satellite is currently orbiting Earth, transmitting data right now.

The UK car industry has seen its ups and downs in the last thirty years but Nissan has been a part of Sunderland since 1981. The factory has become the UK biggest car manufacturer providing many jobs for locals working at the factory to supporting the wider community.

The factory’s success has been down to the hard work of British workers but helped by the ability to parts into the factory and cars out very quickly. Just In Time (JIT) creates incredible efficient factories with low downtime.
Parts which are not made in the UK can be ordered and delivered with minimum paperwork across EU borders, sometimes as quick as 30 minutes.
