National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP)
The AGP has developed a National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP) aimed at aerospace supply chain companies including small and medium sized suppliers to help them develop their own innovative technologies while enhancing their technology management capabilities, thus increasing their ability to win new business with higher tier companies anywhere in the world. NATEP is a £40m programme over the next 3 years; its objective is to deliver 100 novel technologies through collaborative projects within the UK aerospace supply chain. NATEP is managed by ADS, actively supported by the regional aerospace alliances and sponsored by the UK aerospace primes and Tier 1s. By developing a supply chain with a high rate of innovation, rich in new technologies, the UK will be better able to offer the right products and services, at the right time and ahead of competition. This will ensure that market opportunities are exploited with high value manufacturing work retained in the UK. NATEP is funded by the government’s Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI).
