The Showcase will celebrate successes achieved to date from SME organisations within the NATEP programme and provide a forum for companies working on NATEP projects to present their ideas and network with potential customers and aerospace industry stakeholders.
The event will also provide an opportunity for organisations who are looking for future funding to hear how the NATEP programme can support them and the development of their R&D ideas into successful collaborative projects.
The day will include presentations from live NATEP projects as well as keynote speakers from the Industry. Furthermore, key industry representatives from organisations including Safran, Rolls Royce, Morson Projects, Boeing, Innovate UK and ATI, will be in attendance to see how they, along with NWAA, can support local aerospace companies in the supply chain to develop the ideas and innovations that might support completely new aerospace manufacturing capability in the UK.
To further enhance this, we have invited Stephen Cowan, Senior Vice President Operations for GKN Aerospace and Chair of the Manufacturing and Supply Chain Working Group of the Aerospace Growth Partnership to speak at the NATEP Showcase and lead an interactive session on how NATEP 3 might be a potential opportunity to develop elements of the technology required to build on and deliver UK’s current and future capabilities.
The NATEP Showcase gives organisations an excellent opportunity to understand how companies are already benefiting from NATEP and how the UK’s Primes think the supply chain can contribute to developing capability in new areas of the Aerospace Industry.
The complementary EACP-EuroSME Matchmaking is a perfect introduction for aerospace sector SMEs looking to extend the business growth ambitions through European Collaborative Innovation.
This will provide physical and webinar opportunities to meet with like-minded future SME business partners across regions of Europe.
