Keynote session

Why innovation and collaboration are the only way to recovery

The aviation industry is recovering from the biggest setback in its history. At the same time, the climate crisis has been pushed to the fore and mandates set for net zero operations. Industry players can work in isolation and reinvent the wheel independent of one another or can come together to achieve far more than the sum of the parts in collaboration – hear how from:

The global aviation race to net zero: unlocking the potential of UK SMEs

The UK is known globally as a leader in aviation. However, the race to net zero is global so now is the time to act, and for our airports to embrace the innovation of our supply chain. Hear from one of Connected Places Catapult’s challenge airports about why they are in our accelerator, enabling innovative procurement, and from two of our SME cohort about the benefits of demonstrating their technology in this way.

Deep Dive: Delivering Innovation for Aviation Security

The Future Aviation Security Solutions (FASS) programme was designed to encourage, fund, and support the development of innovative solutions to deliver a step change in aviation security. The programme worked closely with stakeholders to remove barriers to innovation and create quicker routes to market. This included supporting testing and trialling of aviation security solutions at all stages of development. Over the previous 6 years FASS has held nine themed competitions to find solutions to specific challenges and funded 146 projects, four of the successful suppliers are going to talk about their solutions and delivering innovation to aviation security.

Overcoming security challenges to the future of transport

To understand how Future Aviation Security Solutions can support the transport network of the future, Connected Places Catapult has been exploring the key future security challenges within cross-modal transport and how this impacts opportunities to transport security innovations. This in turn would ensure the safety and reliability of the transport network, and sustainable inter-modal activity, thus allowing for UK’s businesses, transport users, and goods to travel around the country – enabling continued wider economic growth.
