Support available for innovative UK aerospace projects

Thursday, June 7, 2018

In case you’re not aware, the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, and Innovate UK are jointly running a programme to identify businesses and researchers interested in gaining support for innovative aerospace projects.

Organisations can apply to become part of the £3.9bn programme to support such projects that will help to make UK civil aerospace more competitive, although must fit with the UK’s aerospace technology strategy priority areas which include:

  • Strengthening the UK’s whole-aircraft design and system integration capability and positioning it for future generations of civil aircraft.
  • Development of smart, connected, and more electric powered aircraft.
  • Ensuring the UK remains a global leader in the development of large complex structures, particularly wings.
  • Advancing a new generation of more efficient propulsion technologies, particularly large turbofans.
