The Aerospace Technology Institute will be holding its inaugural biannual conference at the NEC in Birmingham on 28th & 29th November 2017.

We are convening the UK aerospace sector to provide an update on the ATI strategy and the £3.9bn investment programme for aerospace R&T, to hear directly from industry leaders on key topics, and to provide an opportunity for the aerospace community to network and connect with a diverse group of stakeholders from across the sector.

The event will feature some exceptional keynote speakers. Confirmed speakers include Paul Eremenko, Chief Technology Officer at Airbus; Paul Stein, Chief Technology Officer at Rolls-Royce; Dr Jaiwon Shin, Associate Administrator for Aeronautics at NASA; Stéphane Cueille, Head of R&T and Innovation at Safran; Russ Dunn, Senior Vice President of Engineering & Technology at GKN Aerospace; and Jeremy Silver, Chief Executive Officer of the Digital Catapult.

The second day of the conference will feature a range of breakout sessions covering five topics: the value streams of the ATI strategy (Aircraft of the Future; Smart, Connected and More Electric Aircraft; Aerostructures of the Future; Propulsion of the Future) and international engagement.

The UK aerospace sector has a vision to influence, challenge and disrupt the global industry, by advancing our innovation and research & technology capabilities. Let’s use this opportunity to connect and realise our ambitions together.

We invite you to join us and 200+ government, industry and academic decision-makers for this two-day event. Tickets will be priced at £175 (£90 for students) for the two days, and ticketing will open on 17th July. The conference programme and registration details will be available soon.
