Phase III of the Future Flight Challenge competition will open in Autumn 2021 providing organisations the opportunity to bid for funding. To help you prepare and form new partnerships, KTN is running the Future Flight Café series. These short, online webinars will each spotlight one previously funded project then open up the floor for you to discuss ideas and ask questions.
Who should attend?
The Future Flight Challenge needs diverse technologies, services and infrastructure to deliver an advanced aviation system. These webinars are ideal for those with expertise in sectors including data, digital, design, business models, automation, alternative fuels, air traffic management or social science. They’re also a must-attend for Local Authorities, end-users (e.g. NHS, Network Rail, asset owners) and partners (e.g. airports, infrastructure and asset owners), all key enablers to the success of the programme.
The Future Flight Café online series provides a forum to discuss ideas and create new opportunities. If you are working on a Future Flight Challenge project, want to get involved or even start your own project, join us.
By the end of each webinar you will have learnt more about the competition, one of the ongoing Future Flight Challenge projects and could have found a new connection to start your own Future Flight journey.
