Showcasing innovation in aerospace manufacturing


UK aerospace manufacturing innovation and competitiveness will get a boost next month when cutting-edge research and development and industry insights will be centre stage at a new event being held at the Manufacturing Technology Centre.

Innovation in Aerospace Manufacturing  on February 7 will bring together industry leaders to share their strategic direction, priorities and insights. The event will provide some of the country’s most innovative companies with an opportunity to showcase their capabilities, and facilitate collaboration across the whole aerospace manufacturing supply chain including industry, academia and research institutions.

The new event, organised by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and the High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVM Catapult),  will disseminate insights from a set of SPRINT projects recently delivered by HVM Catapult’s seven centres and partners, supported and monitored by the ATI and Innovate UK

Speakers at the event will include Alex Hickson, head of technology for structures, manufacturing and materials at the Aerospace Technology Institute, John Morlidge, deputy director for aerospace at Innovate UK, Neil Mantle, director of manufacturing at Rolls-Royce, Colin Mitchell, head of Wing Industrial Architecture at Airbus, and John Kells, European head of operations for ZeroAvia.
