Aerospace Technology and Innovation Showcase

5 November, 2015, 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


The 2015 Aerospace Technology and Innovation Showcase will highlight how The University is working with its partners across industry, academia and government to deliver the innovations and skills required to overcome the technical challenges facing the UK and EU aerospace industries.

The aerospace industry is growing at a phenomenal rate. By 2030 it is estimated that there will be around 27,000 new large civil airliners in the skies, worth around $3.7tn. It is an industry that is essential to today’s global community, bringing cultures together and enabling strong annual economic growth worth $2.4tn in GDP worldwide.

As a result, the UK and European aerospace industries face numerous challenges and opportunities. In particular pressure stems from the need to develop more sustainable and reliable air travel in the face of intensified international competition.

This half-day event will detail the ways in which government and industry are investing in the research and development of aerospace technologies, and the skills required to exploit these innovations, at The University of Nottingham.

Senior representatives of key partners in some of the University’s projects will explain what it is like to work with Nottingham across a variety of technology themes, including:

  • Aero Engines and Propulsion
  • Aerospace Manufacturing
  • Aerospace Materials
  • Aerospace Operations
  • More Electric Aircraft


Attendees will learn how Nottingham is:

  • Working with UK aerospace through the ATI and Innovate UK
  • Working with European aerospace through Clean Sky 2 and Horizon 2020
  • Working with SMEs to improve their innovation capacity and skills base
  • Preparing the next generation of industry professionals through a new suite of undergraduate Aerospace Engineering courses
