Aerospace Wales, supported by the NWAA, is holding a National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP) event at 1.30pm in the Airbus Visitor Centre at Broughton on Wednesday 15th April 2015.

Through this event we want to encourage you to think about what your business can do now to meet the requirements of the future. However, we recognise that you need some direction and a “pull” from the Primes and Tier 1’s when it comes to technology, so Simon Wadey from Airbus UK will be presenting an Airbus view of technology for the future and indicating how the supply chain can rise to the challenges faced by our industry.

Then we will show you how NATEP Funding can help you bring your ideas to life by showing you some case studies of Projects already in receipt of NATEP funding and how you can access this for your business.

Think about the following –
Do you have an idea that might improve a process, a technology, a supply chain?
• If you had some funding & a little support do you think you could improve, invent or develop something that would help your business & the aerospace industry?
• Do you think that if you had some funding that you could introduce a change or an improvement to one of your existing products or processes that might make you a market leader?
• Do you find yourself thinking “If only I could get some support & funding I could create a new, better or quicker way of doing something that would make me better than my competition”?
• Do you have an idea to combine existing technologies into one product that would create something better than its constituent parts? then NATEP may be able to help!
