Find out how we are fulfilling our mission

Message from our Chief Executive Officer

The Aerospace Technology Institute’s mission to transform aerospace through technology and innovation is critical to our sector achieving Net Zero 2050.

As we approach our ten year anniversary we are committed to sharing information about what the ATI is doing in support of those objectives. On this section of our website you can find data showing where our funding has been invested, how it supports the wider ecosystem and the technology development that has been achieved. You can also find the commitments we have made towards making a positive impact on our environment and our company culture.

We will regularly update this page to showcase the impact of the ATI Programme and that of our other projects and initiatives.

Projects in batches 38, 39 and 40 are delivering against the ultra-efficient, zero-carbon and cross-cutting strategic roadmaps for technology development as set out in Destination Zero.

2022/23 ATI Programme share of forecast R&D spend by project partner (Batches 38, 39 and 40). Including subcontractors within this spend, SMEs accounted for c.25% of the forecast R&D project activity.

The ATI’s impact in 2022/23

We work to fulfil our mission by focusing on four strategic priorities: achieving economic impact, delivering the best technology, strengthening the ecosystem and driving innovation.

We have produced a summary demonstrating how the ATI has made impact in these areas over our most recent financial year (October 2022 – September 2023). Going forward, this report will be updated after each round of grant funding is awarded to successful projects.

It includes an overview of ATI Programme investment to date, with a forecast of the funding headroom within the ATI Programme to financial year 2027/28. It also highlights some of the ATI-supported projects which have demonstrated significant achievements and how we are strengthening the UK ecosystem through targeted support for innovators.

Committing to positive impact

Below you can find some of the commitments we have made as an organisation to further our understanding of issues which affect the aerospace community and improve our offering to our stakeholders, employees and delivery partners.

Race to Zero

As we strive towards achieving net-zero for the future of flight, it is also imperative to internally decarbonise our organisation, fostering shared values for our stakeholders and ensuring the preservation of our planet. That is why we joined the UNFCCC Race to Zero in March 2023. Our target is at least 50% reduction in carbon intensity from our baseline across all our activities by 2030 and Net Zero by 2050.
