What is NATEP:
The National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme is an Aerospace Technology Institute programme with £10m funding in place and the ambition to progress over 60 innovative aerospace technologies. Launched in 2013, this unique mentoring and supportive approach helps SMEs, with little or no experience of Government grants, navigate the funding application and project fulfillment processes. Through this approach SMEs are more likely to succeed.
Harriet Wollerton, NATEP Programme Director comments:
"NATEP is a success and represents a tremendous opportunity, particularly for small and medium sized companies. The programme, running since 2013, has shown that it is sized and arranged to suit the needs of small supply chain companies and projects. The mentoring and support provided by NATEP helps the planning and execution of the projects and has produced many exciting and innovative products, materials and manufacturing processes that will help anchor manufacturing and high value jobs in the UK, improve productivity and competitiveness in the sector and create export opportunities. The new funding from the Aerospace Technology Institute will take the programme to 2023 and can be further built upon”.
