Event description


Join us in a series of lunchtime talks to highlight the research areas key to supporting the creation of the UK sustainable aviation fuel supply chain.

Running on the first Friday of the month, you will hear from a selection of themed talks followed by an opportunity to ask questions and stimulate dialogue. Aimed at businesses, researchers, policy makers and investors, the research programme will support the development of collaborations and inform stakeholders of UK's innovative research capability.

First Friday Research Highlights are being delivered by KTN's Sustainable Aviation Fuel Special Interest Group (SAF SIG), a two year programme sponsored by Innovate UK, Department for Transport and Sustainable Aviation.
