Are you a Lincolnshire based SME with an innovative project idea that could be relevant for the aerospace sector?
Aerospace Unlocking Potential (Aerospace UP) is a £20M three-year project (2020 to 2022) which aims to support the aerospace supply chain in the Midlands by helping to unlock its innovation potential. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by the University of Nottingham and the Midlands Aerospace Alliance.
This briefing session will detail how SME’s based in Lincolnshire can access grant funding and specialist support for new and innovative projects relevant to the aerospace sector.
Your company could be eligible for a grant of between £1,000 and £100,000, alongside fully-funded technical support packages; access to expert and academic guidance, events and workshops, as well as student and graduate support opportunities.
