WHAT IS THE INNOVATION ZONE?

The Innovation Zone brings together the very best in advanced engineering universities, Research and Technology Organisations (RTOs) and the agencies that support them, into one central area - creating a vibrant networking and knowledge transfer hub, at the heart of the Farnborough International Airshow.

The model is simple: industry and government sponsorship enables not-for-profit organisations to exhibit at the Airshow, at an affordable price.

The result: the creation of a ‘one stop shop’ providing a focal point for all the innovation needs of industry.

The 2016 event was a resounding success, with 21 exhibitors including Innovate UK, Clean Sky, Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), Universities and industry sponsors including Rolls-Royce and Thales.

If you are a University or RTO who would like to exhibit in the Innovation Zone, please contact the Sales Team who will be happy to discuss with you. Click here to view the Floor plan.
