Join a new group of aviation experts making zero emission flight a reality

Posted on: 12/05/2022

Innovate UK KTN, in collaboration with the Department for Transport and Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, is inviting aviation experts from across industry to join the Zero Emission Flight Delivery Group (ZEF DG).

As world leaders in aviation decarbonisation, the new ZEF DG, will further Britain’s role in the global effort to end flight emissions by catapulting the latest innovations in aviation decarbonisation technology.

The new group will sit under the Jet Zero Council – an advisory forum with experts from across the industry – and will help position the UK at the forefront of the global shift to green aviation by supporting the development of zero emission aircraft and airport infrastructure. It will also look at how the law needs to adapt so that sustainable flying can truly become a reality.

The launch of the ZEF DG group comes at an important time as the UK aims to put itself in a leading position in the race to achieve zero emission flight. Speaking at the fifth Jet Zero Council meeting today, the Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps said:

“We are determined to bring forward the flight technology of the future, and through our new Zero Emission Flight Delivery Group, we will help create thousands of jobs around the country and take another step toward zero emission flights.”

If you have the relevant interest and expertise in aviation decarbonisation and sustainable flying – Innovate UK KTN is running an Expression of Interest (EOI) campaign to identify prospective members for the ZEF DG.
