Both the Space and Aerospace sectors are known for innovating! We’ve been building and flying aircraft for over 100 years and even put man on the moon (we think), so what’s next?

The current focuses are on making air travel more efficient, electric and autonomous, while Space is fast becoming the go-to sector for developing new services and technologies to be used here on earth!

This webinar is for the smaller businesses in the sectors, who are a crucial part of the supply chain, that are using emerging technologies to improve current aerospace services and using space technology in new ways for the services we need.


In this webinar, we will help you to identify where you could get the funding you need to innovate & how to access the schemes.
