Future Flight Challenge phase 2 opens

Posted on: 12/05/2020

Innovate UK is investing up to £30m in innovation projects as part of phase 2 of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) Future Flight Challenge.  The Future Flight Challenge is a four year, £125m ISCF programme.

Phase 2 will fund projects that develop integrated aviation systems and/or vehicle technologies that enable new classes of electric or autonomous air vehicles. These could include drones, urban air mobility vehicles or electric sub-regional aircraft. Solutions should be able to be integrated into a mature operational environment, ensuring safe and reliable operation in flight and on the ground.

This competition phase has 2 strands, both open to collaborations only:

Strand 1, the ‘fast track’ strand encourages applications from smaller businesses and organisations who traditionally do not work within the aerospace/aviation sector.

Strand 2 will focus on larger projects and encourage applications that seek to integrate technologies and systems.

An online briefing for both strands will be held on 19 May at 10:00.  To register, click here.

The competition closes at midday UK time on 1 July.  For more information on both strands, visit the Innovation Funding Service here.
