The joint UK-Sweden call for proposals is an initiative between the UK Aerospace Research and Technology (UKART) Programme in the UK and Innovair, the national strategic innovation programme for aeronautics in Sweden.
The UK Aerospace Research and Technology (R&T) Programme represents a £3.9 billion joint UK government and industry investment to maintain and grow the UK’s competitive position in civil aerospace design and manufacture. The programme is co-ordinated and managed by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI), the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Innovate UK. The 3 organisations work in close collaboration to deliver a coherent portfolio of projects to meet the objectives and priorities of the UK Aerospace Technology Strategy.
Innovair is Sweden’s national strategic innovation programme for aeronautics. The aim of the programme is to co-ordinate and support stakeholders from industry, universities, institutes, associations and government agencies active in the aeronautics sector. The main objective is to promote favourable conditions for a strong aeronautics industry in Sweden and to strengthen this sector through increased collaboration, research and information dissemination. Innovair is a strategic innovation programme funded by Vinnova and Swedish defence authorities.
