If you require our electron beam services for innovative work within the aerospace industry, then news that the government is looking to fund work that will strengthen the UK's standing in the field.

According to Aerospace-Technology, the UK government is launching a new competition, through the channels of Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), for companies to come to them with innovative ideas that will keep the country relevant and part of the conversation when it comes to aerospace advances.

The competition, which will take place between the 1st July and 24th July, is aimed at 'emerging markets', and Innovate UK and the UKRI are looking for expressions of interest to participate to claim some of the £150 million bounty. According to a spokesperson, “The competition is intended to seek expressions of interest in funding for industrial research or capital investment projects in the aerospace sector”, however it has also been expressed that the projects should have the potential to be applied to the civil aerospace sector.

They also outlined that UK businesses, research and technology groups, as well as academic organisations such as universities, could lead bids for the fund, depending on its application in the industry. The bids should also align with Aerospace Technology Strategy, and key areas highlighted include smart, connected aircrafts, future-proofing systems and any innovations which can help to strengthen whole aircraft design and production in the UK.

This investment is a part of a larger £3.9 billion fund from the UK Aerospace Research and Technology (UKART) programme.
