Conor Chaplin

Knowledge Transfer Manager - Aviation

I focus on Innovate UK KTN’s aerospace and aviation activities, working primarily on the Future Flight Challenge, the Jet Zero Council, and the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Innovation Programme.

I have experience across the aerospace, defence and transport sectors and have previously led development of regional transport innovation strategies and supported technology and policy development on several Innovate UK and Horizon 2020-funded research projects, and have held roles at the UK Ministry of Defence and Transport for Greater Manchester.

I work closely with partners across the UK aviation and innovation sectors, including UK Research and Innovation, central government departments, local authorities, and industry organisations. Please get in touch if I help you with navigating the UK aviation landscape, accessing grant funding, or providing sector-specific expertise.
