Event Details


UK Research and Innovation’s Future Flight Challenge was formally launched on 24th August by the Prime Minister marking the start of a new wave of innovation for UK based businesses working in all aspects of aviation.

The Future Flight Challenge aims to revolutionise the way people, goods and services fly, positioning the UK as a world leader in aviation products and markets worth over $675bn to 2050.

The Future Flight Challenge will develop an aviation system to accelerate the acceptance of these innovative air vehicles into service and therefore define how people, goods and services will be delivered in the years to come.

This will increase UK manufacturing opportunities, increase mobility, improve connectivity and congestion and pave the way for a reduced carbon footprint for aviation globally. UK Government will invest up to £125m over the next four years to support these ambitions.

This networking event will bring together the disparate communities required in order to deliver on the Future Flight Challenge and ensure you are aware of all the support mechanisms available.

More information on the competition is now available on the Innovation Funding Service website here
