Aerospace: Exploring opportunities for businesses in South East Midlands

Date: May 25th, 10:00-13:00

The commercial aerospace sector has been significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a dramatic reduction in passenger traffic, in turn affecting aircraft demand. It is expected to recover slowly but travel demand is not expected to return to pre–COVID-19 levels before 2024.

Yet viewed in the right context, the state of the aerospace industry could represent an opportunity for commercial OEMs and suppliers to make needed changes. The next six to 12 months are a critical period in which to prepare for the recovery. It is particularly true in the SEMLEP area which is a place at the cutting-edge of research and expertise in aerospace and where businesses and universities are among the most successful in the country at working together to commercialise knowledge and test new technologies. The region is at the forefront of the future of flight aerospace sector deal which aims to make the UK a leader of hybrid-electric and electric propulsion and to exploit related new markets such as drones and urban air mobility vehicles.

SEMLEP in partnership with the University of Nottingham and the Midlands Aerospace Alliance are hosting an online event to showcase the aerospace sector research, expertise and opportunities in the region and the business support available to SMEs to make the needed changes for recovery.
