The Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) and ADS are jointly holding an information day focused on European funding opportunities. The online event will focus on opportunities for aerospace through Horizon Europe, as well as funding that will be provided by the European Partnership for Clean Aviation.

With the UK set to become an associated country to Horizon Europe - giving UK organisations the same rights to apply for funding as organisations from EU member states – European funding presents an excellent opportunity for the UK sector.

Horizon Europe is the most ambitious EU multilateral funding scheme yet and as part of the seven-year €95 billion package, a ‘climate, energy and mobility cluster’ will offer significant grant funding opportunities for aerospace research and technology. The ‘digital, industry and space’ cluster will also provide grant funding for research into advanced manufacturing technologies, many of which are directly applicable to aerospace.

In addition, the next iteration of Clean Sky – the European Partnership for Clean Aviation – will start in the Autumn and is set to accelerate the development, integration, and validation of technology specifically aimed at achieving climate neutrality for aviation.

The combination of these programmes creates an unrivalled ecosystem for the aerospace sector, with the funding, collaboration and network opportunities enabling research to take place that is beyond the scope of individual countries.

Why attend?

The UK has done exceptionally well from EU research programmes in previous years and in addition to the grant funding it has provided, EU schemes have enabled UK companies, universities and research organisations to broaden their knowledge, enter international supply chains at an early stage, and gain access to skills and infrastructure not readily available in the UK.

This online webinar is open to UK as well as European delegates with an interest in participating in European collaborative projects in Horizon Europe and Clean Aviation.
